Grants for Faith Communities Now Available

Several grant applications from The Episcopal Church are now open:

United Thank Offering (UTO) Grants are being requested on the topic of Care of Creation: turning love into action by caring for God’s creation to protect the most vulnerable; those who will bear the largest burden of pollution and climate change.  Grants can be for justice, advocacy, environmental reparations, and/or the development of formation materials. Additional UTO grant information can be found here.

One grant is put forward from each diocese. ECMN's internal selection deadline is December 13, 2021.

Please email your proposals to Rachel Babbitt. Documents should include the UTO Grant Application and UTO Grant Processing sheet. These documents can be found on the UTO application page under 'Grant Application Materials.' All other UTO application materials will be completed if you are selected as the ECMN Grant. Grants are reviewed by a panel of ECMN Council members and one grant is selected and submitted to UTO by their deadline of February 4, 2022.

Constable Grants are also now open. Constable Grants focus on religious education. Learn more here. Applications are due by December 12.
