Congregational Grant Program
In 2020, Episcopal Impact Fund responded to the devastating effects of COVID-19 on people living in poverty by donating immediately to the discretionary fund of all 76 congregations in the Diocese. Each congregation was asked to use our donation to respond as quickly as possible to emergency needs caused by the pandemic. Churches reported to us that they were able to buy groceries, pay for motel rooms for temporary shelter and help with transportation costs for their neighbors.
In 2021, Episcopal Impact Fund will return to an application-based grant process and will make up to 8 one-year grants of between $1,000 - $8,000 to congregations. These grants will support congregationally-based programs that address poverty within the Episcopal Diocese of California.
Please revisit this page in June 2021 when the congregational grants application will be available.
