FIA Textbook Fund

A few years ago UUSM joined with several other UUs throughout the state of California to raise funds for textbooks for inmates who were taking courses through a community college.  Although the courses are free, students must pay for textbooks, which are often quite expensive.  At UUSM we set a goal of $750, which was exceeded by more than 100  percent, with a final total of over $2,000.

We have now received several letters from inmates who received textbooks through the fund, expressing their gratitude for the textbooks and for the opportunity provided to continue their education.  Many indicated how they hope to use what they learn to help others.  The need for textbooks for student inmates continues, and we are re-launching the campaign to raise funds, this time with a goal of $1,500.   As before, the funds are being administered by Faith in Action.   At the end of the campaign, UUCCSM will send a check for the total to a foundation set up by the community college; the foundation then provides scholarships (the Unitarian Universalist Textbook Scholarships) for student inmates to be used to pay for textbooks.

If you would like to donate to this effort, please click here or on the blue donation button, above, and specify that you would like your donation to go to the "FIA Textbook Fund."

Ralphs Community Contributions

If you shop at Ralphs, we have a way for you to give to UUCCSM. Under their Community Contribution program, Ralphs donates to UUCCSM a portion of every dollar you spend at Ralphs when you enroll on-line with your Ralphs Rewards Card number.  Go to, click on “Community,” then on “Community Contribution."  You’ll need our NPO (non-profit organization) number which is 81397.  Or you can print this letter and take it to Ralphs next time you shop and the cashier will scan the bar code at the bottom of the letter to attach it to your Ralphs Club number.

Donate from your smart phone!

UUCCSM now offers a mobile version of our online giving page to make it easy for you to give anytime from your smart phone. Simply scan the image you see here using your phone’s Quick Response (QR) code reader!
