Apply for an Envision Grant

About the Application

All Envision Grant applications are due by March 1 each year. Applicants will receive notice of awards by the end of May.

Eligibility

Envision programs focus exclusively on special projects and seed money for new projects or programs. Programs do not support day-to-day operating expenses, emergency funding, or budgetary items. Our program is focused on helping dreams for ministry development, service, and a more equitable world become a reality.

All applications must fall under at least one of these categories:

  • Ministry development: Identifying or expanding ministry areas
  • Service: Local, national, or international humanitarian activities
  • Social Justice Advocacy: Working for social change to remove obstacles for all people.

Church members, friends, and staff must be sponsored by a committee before moving forward with an application. Additionally, the Session must be aware of your application. Most committees and the Session meet monthly, so please consider lag time (usually 2-3 months) due to scheduling. Do not begin your application until you have met with your sponsoring committee and the Session is aware of your interest.
