UNITED THANK OFFERING (UTO)
NOTICE. GIVE. MAKE. BLESS.
What if your personal spiritual practice of gratitude could impact thousands of people in lifegiving ways? UTO is a way to practice gratitude and change the world. Notice the good things that happen each day. Give thanks to God for your blessings. Make an offering for each blessing. Your blessing becomes a blessing for others.
UTO invites individuals to embrace and deepen a personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. For gratitude resources, events, and information, visit our gratitude page.
UTO distributes 100% of thank offerings made to the Ingathering to ministries throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion.
UTO is made up of a collection of lay and clerical members across the world, and our organization is made possible through this wonderful, grass-roots leadership.
The National Episcopal Church Women and it’s local groups are ministries of the Episcopal Church.
