Courage. Generosity. Community. These are a few of the cornerstones that shape our congregation’s values. One of the ways we live those values out loud is by supporting local nonprofit organizations in doing their good work by sponsoring the space they need to hold their meetings, classes, events, and trainings. The mission and work of each organization is different, but all are in alignment with USSB’s mission and values.

We were given this beautiful campus not to sit in a pristine, empty state, but to further the good work happening in the community.

Donating the use of our space allows organizations to use the funds that would have been used towards rental fees to be put back into the work they do in our community. For those organizations that do not have a budget, a sponsored room alleviates the concern of trying to find resources to cover the cost of renting a room.

Any day of the week you can find groups meeting here on campus, a bustling epicenter of good local work. USSB is proud to have sponsored and donated in-kind room space for these local organizations. Click the logo to learn more about these partners.
