The records reflect the business and program of the United Thank Offering (UTO) office and the work of the Coordinator. The central thread of the documentation is the UTO grant program. Administrative records consist of correspondence, specifically letters to diocesan bishops explaining UTO’s grant application process, application instructions, the UTO Committee [Grant] Policy Statement, rosters, and other reference materials. Distributions to the diocesan UTO chairwomen include the Interpretive Materials samples of new promotional materials for that season along with Offerings, the UTO newsletter, grants list brochure, and a UTO poster. The Grants Administration series contains the grant requests and process documents. The “staff book” was an administrative binder containing a comprehensive overview of all UTO grant requests from 1977 until 1983.
