About the Scholarship:

The Tucker Memorial Scholarship Fund was established by the ECW of the Diocese of East Tennessee “in thanksgiving for Mollie Tucker’s life and witness and for her many years of service to the Episcopal Church Women in Tennessee.” The financial award is intended to help recipients reach educational goals at accredited colleges or technical schools. Since 1988, more than 25 women in the diocese have been awarded a Mollie Hazen Tucker Scholarship. It is a one-time grant, currently $2,000, for one year only.

Ingatherings of the United Thank Offering

Our Change Changes Lives.

The United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of The Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through UTO, individuals are invited to embrace and deepen a personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude. UTO encourages people to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings and make an offering for each blessing using a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute the 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion.

Contact Gayle LaMariana, East Tennessee’s UTO Coordinator with questions, comments, and stories at or by calling 423-807-0345. You’ll also send her your UTO Ingathering checks!

Your UTO ingathering checks should be payable to “ECW” with “UTO” in the memo line. Please contact me if you need the mailing address. All checks must be received prior to December 1st of each year to be applied to the current offering cycle. Please also note that should you send your donation directly to UTO and wish to receive recognition for your donation (either individually or as a parish) you will need to email Isabelle Watkins at or give on-line. This will ensure proper reporting.
