The Survive and Thrive Campaign enabled the creation of an endowment for seed money for parish-based initiatives. Parishes contemplating a grants application are required to prepare a formal application form, discuss the proposal with their regional archdeacon, and submit applications according to a regularly scheduled review process. Please refer to the Grants Criteria/Description and the Application Form for more details.
Due to the recent economic downturn, funds are limited, and new applications for grants are being limited to a maximum of $2000.
Preference will be given to grant applications with potential for wide application and impact.
For more details please refer to the Grants Criteria/Description and the Application Form in Resources to the right.
- the Grants Committee will meet immediately after March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 1 to review and process applications received as of those dates
- for all grants awarded, a report detailing the outcomes of the training and develop-ment activities relative to the original grant application criteria must be submitted to the Grants Committee immediately following their completion.
