The UUA and the NYSCU

When the Unitarian and Universalist denominations merged in 1961, the New York State Convention of Universalists continued as an independent organization. We are legally and financially independent from the Unitarian Universalist Association, but we work with the UUA and the two districts in New York State: the Metropolitan New York District and the St. Lawrence District.

We support the general operating budgets of both districts, and also fund special projects.

We support two Unitarian Universalist Camp and Conference centers: Unirondack, founded by Universalists in New York State, and Murray Grove, the birthplace of American Universalism.

We aid Unitarian Universalist congregations and organizations through our program of grants and loans.

We have presented workshops at the UUA General Assembly, and help sponsor the John Murray Distinguished Lecture given at the General Assembly each year.
