Charitable organizations may seek financial support from St. Thomas More under the guidance and recommendation of the Social Justice Committee. All requesting organizations selected for consideration will be required to submit information regarding its charitable mission and purpose; its impact in the community; its structure, operations and funding; and other information supporting the request. In considering and recommending approval of requests for financial support, the Committee shall give priority to organizations with ties to the Society of Jesus and/or the St. Thomas More Parish or parishioners, and to organizations brought to the Committee’s attention by the Parish or parishioners.
This grant cycle, we expect a particular focus on organizations with programs or projects serving refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers. The application deadline is October 31st. Our goal is to fund one-time grants (e.g. not operating expenses) with significant impact. We expect to have $140,000 in total funds to distribute, with the largest possible grant to any one organization being $50,000.
