Global Heart Tithe Grant 

In accord with our intention to actively participate in the universal flow of abundance, Universal Spirit Center awards grants totaling 10% of all incoming donations. These grants, collectively known as our Global Heart Tithe, are all made in the name of our spiritual community.

Each month, 5% flows out to Centers for Spiritual Living, our supportive umbrella organization. Additionally, 5% will be awarded as grants to non-political organizations or individuals whose work aligns with our Center’s purpose and mission of creating a world that works for everyone.

Anyone may apply for a Global Heart Tithe grant. All applications will be reviewed by Stewardship Core at its monthly meetings. Grants are typically made only once to a particular project or organization.
