The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, through its Mission and Outreach Committee, will be awarding grants to programs that assist those who are underserved in our communities, that will be strengthened by the endorsement of the diocese, that create a loving connection with community, and that involve personal participation by our congregations. Grants should be considered seed money, not yearly funding.
Who is eligible to apply?
- Individual members of the diocese
- A group of members of the diocese
- A group of members of a congregation within the diocese
- A combined group such as a group of congregations in a deanery
All are encouraged to submit an application. Funds are offered in two categories:
Beyond the Diocese Outreach Impact Program – This category includes special outreach needs beyond the geographical boundaries of the diocese, both inside and outside the United States. The available funding budgeted for this category is $5,198
In the Diocese Matching Grant Outreach Program – This category includes outreach within the diocese. These funds are to be used to match or to provide seed money for congregations or groups to fund or undertake an outreach need that they could not do on their own. The Matching Grant Outreach Program currently has budgeted $34,657.
Please read the application form carefully. Applications will be due March 31, 2021. Project organizers should be notified with checks and letters by May 29, 2021.
