Share the Plate Nominations: 2019-20
Our Share the Plate program gives us the opportunity to show tangible support to organizations who are doing good work in our community. We split selected Sunday plate offerings 50/50 with groups nominated and voted on by the Members of TVUUC. Some examples of past organizations are: Planned Parenthood of Middle & East TN, Centro Hispano, Beardsley Community Farm, Ijams Nature Center, etc. As of May of this year, we have been able to give over $12,000 to organizations in our community and beyond. Thanks to everyone who submitted a nomination or gave to support Share the Plate to make this amazing contribution possible!

Please note there were some changes to the program beginning in the 2018-19 year. 6 organizations are now considered part of the TVUUC "Social Funding Network" and will automatically be included in the Share the Plate schedule as "Designated Offerings". They do not need to be nominated. These organizations are:
1. Family Promise
2. FISH Food Pantry
3. Lonsdale Mentoring Program
4. TVUUC Community Gardens
5. Volunteer Ministry Center Meals
6. TVUUC Advancing Equality Fund

TVUUC Members will nominate organizations and vote to fill 12 spots for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Each organization will have two Share the Plate Sundays.
The Senior Minister will have 6 Sundays for Designated Offerings (including the Christmas Eve Service collection for the TVUUC Helping Fund).
One Sunday per month will be a "Stewardship/Generosity" Sunday, with all offerings going to the TVUUC Operating Budget.
