2024 Outreach Grant Application Opens December 1, 2023!
“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
Thank you for your interest in requesting support from the St. David’s Cares Outreach Grant Program. St. David’s is a church on a mission to know God in Jesus Christ and to make God 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:
- Organizations affiliated with the Episcopal (Anglican) Church
- Organizations that involve St. David’s parishioners, with the potential of increasing volunteer opportunities for parishioners
- Programs that promote or assist self-sufficiency
- Specific project needs that have a clear start and finish
- 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.
2024 Grant Application
The 2024 Grant Application will open on December 1, 2023. We strongly recommend you fill out the form from a desktop computer or large screen tablet. All grants must be submitted online before Wednesday, January 10, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. ET. If you have any questions, please contact The Rev. Thomas Szczerba at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610.688.7947 x303.
