Last Chance to Apply for Matching Funds for International Development & Disaster Relief

Contributed by: Global Goals Task Force

Your congregation’s last chance to double your support for international development is Nov. 1, the deadline to apply for a Global Goals Matching Grant Program from the diocese.

Did your congregation raise funds for Episcopal Relief and Development (such as for hurricane relief or for Gifts for Life), or support the education of a child at Good Shepherd Home in Cameroon, or work with a different international development organization?

The Diocesan Global Goals Task Force offers matching grants each year to congregations engaged in international development and relief work, and up to $750 is available per project. The applicant decides which partner organization to support and may request matching funds for either an ongoing or a new project. Each project must address at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals in an international location. Congregations can apply for more than one grant. Applications are available on our Web site.
