The United Thank Offering was an annual giving campaign organized by the Women’s Auxiliary of the Episcopal Church, which by the 1970s operated as a fund-raising and fund-giving arm of the Church. Its grant program in most recent decades has been directed to support Church priority programs of the General Convention and to fund ecumenical and overseas Anglican programs.
