Parish & Partnership Mission Grants

Parish Mission Grants are awarded for a one-time mission project or ongoing mission. The goal is to fund mission that enhances the vitality of the congregation while addressing the vision and mission of the Diocese. Partnership Mission Grantsare awarded to Non-profit organizations [separate 501(c)3 designation] that are distinct from the Episcopal Diocese and the parishes.

Sustainable Development Grants

The Sustainable Development Goals, otherwise known as the Global Goals, build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight anti-poverty targets that the world committed to achieving by 2015. The MDGs, adopted in 2000, aimed at an array of issues that included slashing poverty, hunger, disease, gender inequality, and access to water and sanitation.

The SDGs, and the broader sustainability agenda, go much further than the MDGs, addressing the root causes of poverty and the universal need fordevelopment that works for all people.
