The Grant Program

St. David’s is a church on a mission to know God in Jesus Christ and to make Christ known to others. One tangible way we do this is our annual Grant Program. The grant application process typically begins in December and ends in mid-January. 2021 grant application details and deadlines will be announced this Fall.

As you prepare to submit an application for the 2021 Grant Program, please consider the following grant criteria. The Outreach Committee prefers to fund:

  1. Organizations affiliated with the Episcopal (Anglican) Church
  2. Organizations that involve St. David’s parishioners, with the potential of increasing volunteer opportunities for parishioners
  3. Programs that promote or assist self-sufficiency
  4. Specific project needs that have a clear start and finish
  5. Organizations that are located within the Philadelphia, Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks or Chester counties in Pennsylvania, or our international partner sites

*Note: All grants, particularly those that aid and support the underserved in our local community, will be reviewed.
Thank you for your interest. Please contact The Reverend Maurice Dyer, with any questions.
