Social Ministry, Justice and Advocacy Grants
The Grant Proposal Request Application form for Social Ministry, Justice and Advocacy Grants for 2018-19 is now available! The deadline for proposals to be received at the synod office is April 1, 2018; the committee will meet in April of 2018 to consider proposals. Grants usually average about $500. Grant proposals should follow the form and be limited to three pages in length plus attachments. Proposals that do not follow the form or exceed the length limitation will be returned for revision. The program requires involvement of a C/SIS congregation in the grant process.
All proposals must state how a local C/SIS congregation will actively be involved in the implementation of the project. A letter of commitment from the congregation must be attached to the proposal. When multiple congregations are supporting the project, letters must be attached from each congregation.
Successful applicants are required to submit a mid-year progress report with photos and a final report to the committee summarizing their expenditures and describing their progress in achieving their proposed objectives before May 1, 2019. Glorious success is not required for the payment, but the reporting of the effort is.
Send completed applications to my attention to the synod office or by e-mail (listed above). If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at Holy Cross Lutheran (217) 877-2258.
Thank you for your continued interest in social ministry, justice and advocacy.
