Celebrate the joy of sharing!

One of the unique aspects of the Christmas Fund is that the funds provide direct financial assistance to individual UCC clergy, lay church employees, and their surviving spouses/partners—the funds do not support programs or institutions, but people. With your continued generosity, more individuals will receive the support of the Church in their time of need.
