For questions, email Grants Coordinator Izzy Winn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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:
Past grants have ranged from $1,000 to $40,000 although there is no ceiling amount or set number of grants as long as the awards fit within the annual endowment grants fund allowed 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. Applicants do not need to be faith-based or church-affiliated.
Guidelines including the timetable for the application process and the Grant Application form can be downloaded. To learn more about applying or getting involved with the process contact our Grants Administrator, Izzy Winn, directly and immediately at email@example.com or by calling 410-974-0200 x30.
