Grants for Community Organizations

The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection’s Outreach Commission offers financial support in the form of grants, awarded primarily to local established and emerging non-profit organizations which address issues of community health, hunger, and homelessness. The Commission reviews grant requests up to $500.
