Grant Cycle Guidelines

Home / Faith in Action / Grant Cycle Guidelines

St. Thomas More Catholic Church’s Social Justice Committee operates a grants program. In the 2021-22 grant cycle, we have identified 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 1st, 2020, and final awards will be announced by April 1st, 2021.
