The Grant Program

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:19

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 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:

  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: 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.

A list of 2021 awardees may be found below. Please check back on December 1, 2021 for the 2022 grant season.

This form will open on Wednesday, December 1, 2021. Please return then.

Grant Application Deadline: All grant submissions must be received by 5:00pm EST on Wednesday, January 12, 2022. Late applications will not be considered. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact The Reverend Maurice A. Dyer at mdyer@stdavidschurch.org.
