In the spirit of our loving community, we have created the Keith Orts UU Scholarship Fund. This fund has been established to honor Keith Orts, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist and to promote his love for Unitarian Universalism. The Fund was announced on Sunday, May 3.
Our minister Rev. Sandra Fees says of the Fund:
When I spoke to Keith and Carol about our desire to honor Keith while he was with us, we agreed that a program that promotes Unitarian Universalism and helps to grow our faith was just the thing. Those who knew Keith knew of his great love for this religion. Even the love of his life, Carol, he met at a Unitarian Universalist church.
The fund will provide scholarships to support attendance at General Assembly and other UU events that connect members, children, and youth with our larger UU world. The fund total is currently $20,000. Members and friends may make a gift in Keith's honor by writing a check to: The First Unitarian Universalist Church of Berks County (FUUBC) and writing "Orts Fund" on the memo line. Please direct any questions about the Fund to the church office.
