The Stirrings of the Spirit leadership team invites your applications for two grant opportunities available to congregations and groups within the Episcopal Church in Vermont. The guidelines offer the details and the application process.
Two tiers of grants are available:
Micro-grants – awards under $2000.
Mission Initiatives – awards up to $10,000, for comprehensive and innovative initiatives that can be self-sustaining within a reasonable timeline.
Particular interest for grant funding will be shown for projects that address the following:
- Opportunities to work ecumenically or with interfaith partners
- Opportunities to include impoverished or communities in need
- Projects which address a social justice concern and promote transformation
- Projects which are replicable within similar contexts
Applicants are invited to apply for one type of grant. The application deadline is April 15, 2014.
Funding for these grants is made possible through the Alleluia Fund and other funds overseen by Diocesan Council.
The leadership team of Stirrings of the Spirit looks forward to reviewing your exciting and innovative project proposals!
