Year Up

  • For BLUU (Black Lives of Unitarian Universalism) there was a financial challenge to commit to donating at least $10 for every church member, which would be matched dollar-for-dollar. Melrose UU Church far exceeded the challenge, and BLUU has received millions in grants as a result of the efforts of many UU Churches and individuals and the commitment of the UUA Board of Trustees.
