The Episcopal Church invites applications for grants to assist with Young Adult and Campus Ministries throughout the church. This is a three-step process that includes discernment and planning, writing the application, and online submission. This process is designed to help you discern where and how God is calling your community to serve young adults and whether now is the right time to apply for a grant.
A total of $133,000 is available for this cycle, with a total of $400,000 available this triennium. These grants are for the 2020-2021 academic year. The deadline for submitting grants is November 20, 2020. There are four categories of grants:
Leadership Grant: to establish a new, restore a dormant, or reenergize a current campus ministry. Grant will range from $8,000-30,000 and can be used over a two-year period.
Campus Ministry Grants: to provide seed money to assist in the start-up of new, innovative campus ministries or to enhance a current ministry. Grants $1,000-8,000.
