Request for Grant Proposals
Applications Now Available
March 6, 2017
To all congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California:
Episcopal Community Services of Northern California is at the point in the 2017 grant cycle when we are requesting grant proposals.
Thanks to those who submitted Letters of Interest in preparation for this next phase.
Please click on the Ministry Grants tab, above. Then, click on links to the separate 2017 Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Ministry Development Fund Grants, the Bishop Jerry & Jane Lamb Grant, and the new three-year Warren Dunning Memorial Social Justice Grant.
While most of the questions anticipate narrative answers, there are two exceptions:
1) a detailed budget of expenses and income for your project, and
2) a copy of your congregation’s Annual Report.
If you did not submit a Letter of Interest, please contact ECS as soon as possible, even if you are not ready to submit your application, so that a mentor may be assigned to assist you through the RFP process.
RFPs are due May 1, 2017 and, where possible, should be emailed, with the appropriate attachments. RFPs will gladly be accepted before that date.
Please look at several summaries of last year's grants for ideas for your congregation by clicking on links button, above.
