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 its Central East Region, which serves congregations in New York State.

We provide modest support to the operating budget of the Region, and also fund special projects.

We have strong historical ties to 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 collaborated with Murray Grove for many years to sponsor the Assembly’s John Murray Distinguished Lecture.
