The Grant Program

Thank you for your interest in requesting support from the St. David’s Outreach 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.

As you prepare to submit an application, please consider the following criteria. As the Outreach Grant Committee, we prefer to fund:

  1. Organizations affiliated with the Episcopal (Anglican) Church
  2. Organizations that involve a number of our St. David’s parishioners, with the potential of increasing volunteer opportunities for our 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: While we prefer to fund grants that meet as many of our criteria as possible, all grants, particularly those that aid and support the underserved in our local community, will be reviewed by the Committee.

Grant Application Deadline: All grants submissions must be received by 5:00pm EST on Wednesday, January 15th, 2020. Late applications will not be considered. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact The Reverend Maurice Dyer at

Grant Application Submissions are now closed.
