The Universal Life Church Ministries sees itself as more than just an organization than provides free, lifelong online ordinations for men and women around the world. As a non-profit organization registered with the State of Washington, we are proud to support the following charitable organizations as a valued member of the religious community, the Seattle area, and America as a whole. We encourage you to follow our example and “do that which is right.” Please consider donating your time or money to these outstanding charities.
The Children’s Hospital Foundation has led the way in the medical treatment of children since it was founded in 1967. It advocates on behalf of children in the political spectrum; it was one of the parties responsible for the 1967 Flammable Fabrics Act amendment that requires fire-retardant sleepwear for children.
A large Children’s Hospital located near the ULC Ministries’s headquarters in Seattle draws patients from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and even Alaska. We know from firsthand experience what it means to the parents across the region to have a world-class hospital available for their young ones’ treatment. Our contributions to this charity are paltry compared to the donations of other, wealthier organizations, but we have been delighted to do our part by helping out in any way we can.
This nationwide charity is devoted to funding blood cancer research, and is the world’s largest organization in its field. The LLS focuses on more than leukemia and lymphoma; it also seeks to cure Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. It claims to have raised a whopping $600 million since it was founded in the late 1940s; the ULC Ministries is proud to have contributed a slight fraction of this amount.
This Seattle-based charity is a prominent HIV and AIDS care and legal advocacy provider. It helps pick up the slack left by state agencies in caring for those affected by this virus and disease. Lifelong AIDS Alliance also organizes Seattle’s popular Aids Walk, a charity benefit designed to raise money for AIDS and HIV related causes.
New Beginnings is a Seattle-based charity focused on helping out the female and child victims of domestic violence. New Beginnings provides much-needed support and shelter for a surprisingly diverse segment of the population; the domestic violence victims they have assisted include ladies in their 60s, mail order brides, runaways turned prostitutes, and loving mothers who stayed in abusive relationships because they thought it was best for their children. Perhaps New Beginnings’ most important work they take on is to change the social climate that spawns domestic abusers.
Impoverished youth from adverse backgrounds get help from Seattle Education Access; this non profit organization uses the resources at its disposal to aid non-traditional students in attaining college educations. They provide three crucial services: empower, mentor, and finance youth who need assistance with attaining an education.
The UNCF is the nation’s largest college fund for minorities; it has raised over $3 billion and has helped 400,000 minority students from low to middle income families attend and graduate college in the 67 since it was founded.
The Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption in Seattle, WA, provides for and shelter for hundreds of homeless men in the Seattle area. The Universal Life Church Ministries’s recent contribution was enough to feed these persons for six months. We implore you to aid the homeless in your communities; local soup kitchens always need more support.
