Grant applications for both Social Service Ministries and Advocacy/Public Witness are due no later than March 15, 2023. Questions? Contact Canon Jo Ann Hardy firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year, our Diocesan Council is committed to supporting existing and new programs in our congregations that make a difference in your local context. Is there a ministry in your worshipping community that is of particular relevance to your community and the neighbors whom you serve? If so, please consider applying for one of the grants below:
These grants, which average between $200-$3,000, assist congregations and agencies in our diocese that support those in their communities most in need of help and hope. In recent years, grants have been awarded primarily to programs that support the community with basic needs of food, clothing, housing, medical care and education for children. In 2022, we were able to support the programs of fifteen diocesan agencies and congregations, spanning the geography of our entire diocese! (Total available to disburse: $53,500)
These grants (average $200–$1,000) assist our worshipping communities to participate in public policy/grass-roots efforts for social change or other peace and justice concerns. These efforts may include organizing or joining existing legislative advocacy efforts, sponsoring educational events, letter-writing campaigns, or other publications, etc. (Total available to disburse: $22,000)
Applications for both accepted throughout the year. Grants are awarded for bricks and mortar/building improvements. Loans may be considered for a variety of uses.
