Endowment Grants Information
St. Margaret’s Church is blessed to have an endowment that generates income for providing grants to local, regional and global programs for specific use compatible with the mission priorities of the congregation. Thanks to the vision and foresight of the vestry and parishioners upon receipt of a generous unrestricted bequest from Edwin and Zoe Hall in 1995, with the vestry’s approval, the St. Margaret’s Grants Committee, made up of dedicated parishioners, will issue new grants this program year for the 19th time.
Our mission priorities are:
The amount of funding awarded is determined by the Missions Commission. Each year the total amount of giving varies but has been as high as $145,000 and as low as
$83,000. In 2020, the total grants awards totaled $113,000.
Applicants do not need to be faith-based or church-affiliated.
