INFORMATION for APPLICANTS
Thank you for your interest in Old Ship Church’s Social Outreach program. As commissioned by the Parish, the Committee is pleased to administer funds appropriated for social outreach in support of projects that further Old Ship’s Third Purpose: to act for social and ecological justice. This year, preference will be given to projects with an emphasis on homelessness and/or nutritional security.
Although the amount available for FY 2016 grants cannot be predicted with certainty, in recent years a total of $3,000-$4,000 has been distributed. One or more proposals may be funded depending on the number received and the amount of each request. The final determination of awards will be made by vote of First Parish members at the Annual Meeting in May 2016.
