Grant Cycle Guidelines

Home / Faith in Action / Grant Cycle Guidelines

St. Thomas More Catholic Church’s Social Justice Committee operates a grant program. In the 2022-23 grant cycle, we will continue to emphasize two focus areas: 1) racial justice, and 2) poverty and income inequality.

Our goal is to fund one-time grants with significant impact. Please note – we are NOT able to fund salary or other operating expenses. We fund capital expenses (for example, construction projects, equipment, or other tangible needs). We expect to have approximately $100,000 in total funds to distribute this year, with the largest possible grant to any one organization being $40,000. Our grant application deadline this year is December 23, 2022, and final awards will be announced by April 1, 2023.
