For Institutions wishing to send funds to overseas partners in Hungary, Romania, India or the Philippines, the UUPCC offers an easy-to-use, free transfer service for UUPCC member congregations. Just fill out this Transfer Form and send it with a check made payable to "UUPCC" to:
483 E. Lockwood Ave, Suite 109
St. Louis, MO 63119
NOTES: The form is for use by the UUPCC staff in preparing information to be sent to Unitarian/Universalist headquarters in the various countries. The bank transfer is done electronically. The paper copies of the forms are not sent. Therefore, please make sure that you contact someone in your partner congregation to let them know that the money is coming. Transfers generally get to partner churches within a week or 10 days in Transylvania/Hungary. Transfers to the Philippines and especially NE India can take significantly longer. The UUPCC pays transfer fees for UUPCC members. However, the UUPCC deducts 3% to offset credit card fees for transfer donations sent to the UUPCC via credit card.
Transylvania: (12x's a year) UUPCC processes checks as they come in and transfers are made around the 10th of every month.
The Philippines: (4'x's a year) UUPCC processes checks as they come in and transfers are made around the 10th of February, May, August, and November.
Northeast India: (4'x's a year) UUPCC processes checks as they come in for transfers made around the 10th of February, May, August, and November.
Sending Money to Individuals
If you are an individual sending a birthday gift or a wedding present or private student support that is not part of a church program, a good way to send it is by using a money transfer service such as MoneyGram (available at many CVS locations) or Western Union. These reliable, secure, low-cost services are easy to use: generally the sender pays at a retail store and is given a reference number that the overseas recipient uses to receive the funds at a local bank. Please note, if we receive a check intended for an individual, we will return it to you as we don't handle transfers to invidivuals.
