New Ways to Support UCM
Like our Facebook page.Then, you can keep up with what is going on at the Ministry. Our Facebook page has a new donate tab. Share the page and the donate tab option with your friends.
You can choose UCM as your Amazon Smile recipient. Use this link to choose UCM as your organization. Two notes: Amazon Smile only works on your computer. It is not active on the Amazon app on your phone. Our registered tax exempt name is “Arkansas Presbyterian and Disciples Campus Ministry Board”. (This is the legal name under which we have our tax exempt status and you may see us listed in Hot Springs due to the way it was established).
You can make a HUGE impact for the ministry by starting a monthly sustaining gift. As we prepare for a transition in the spring to a new Campus Minister for UCM, sustained giving will pave the way to fully supporting the full-time campus ministry position we need to match the vibrant ministry we have established here.
We Have Received a Sustainability Grant
from the Lilly Endowment
United Campus Ministry (UCM) is excited to announce our continued partnership with the Lilly Endowment’s Campus Ministry Theological Exploration of Vocation (CMTEV) Leadership Initiative program. Lilly invited us to apply for a grant to sustain the wonderful seeds sown through our first grant. The new grant runs through December 2021 in the form of a $49,950 Sustainability Grant.
This grant makes possible the continuation of the Community Engagement position as well as the student internship program. We cannot overstate the impact of these programs to the vibrant and growing ministry at UCM.
In 2017-18 we reached over 100 unique students and over 1000 participants in regular programming. We appreciate the generosity of the Lilly Endowment in helping us to continue our work in these important areas.
The Sustainability Grant is a matching grant and we are tasked with raising $49,950 over the next three years. We have begun our fundraising and have already received $2500 toward our goal. We have great plans for how this money will be raised in the coming years and invite you to participate in supporting our on-going partnership with Lilly.
