Starr King counts on house party events, such as the one we had planned this weekend, as significant sources of individual donations. These gifts provide us with the resources necessary to educate a new wave of progressive religious leaders in Unitarian Universalism and many other traditions. Ultimately, this unrestricted support allows us to keep tuition as low as possible for our students, which we view as a justice issue.
Luckily, Starr King has long been a pioneer in distance learning and work-from-home options, so our mission continues. With this global health crisis looming over us, Starr King is a source of pastoral support and hope for the entire Unitarian Universalist community. That’s why we held our “Virtual Gathering” to engage our supporters without putting anyone at risk.
To ensure Starr King is able to continue our important work by meeting our goals in these uncertain times, please make a donation to SKSM as you would have done at the physical gathering. We are counting on your generosity to propel our work forward. We truly can’t do this without you!
As an example of how crucial our work is at Starr King, please take a few moments to watch the story of one of students, Toben Squires. Toben is a UU, training for military chaplaincy. We hope his story shows the transformative and liberating power of an education committed to countering oppressions of all kinds.
