Outreach

Responding to Jesus’s mandate in Matthew 25 to feed, clothe and care for those in need, the Outreach Ministry of Christ Episcopal Church assists those who serve the most vulnerable in our community, our nation and the world. We do this through an annual grant-making program, by identifying ways parishioners can provide hands-on service and encouraging participation.  Our current outreach partners include:

2017 Outreach Grant Application

The Outreach Committee of Christ Episcopal Church is accepting applications for grants to nonprofit programs that provide basic needs to the most vulnerable of our neighbors. In addition to small grants (typically $10,000 or less) for such work, the Outreach Ministry provides funds to organizations with local, national or international Episcopal affiliation, especially those founded by Christ Episcopal Church or impacted by significant parishioner participation. Recipients are selected in an annual process by a committee of parishioners, under the guidance of the senior associate rector. Please complete and submit the information in this form to be considered for an outreach grant in 2018. You may save your work and continue at a later date if needed. Applications are due by December 15, 2017.

    Having received funds from Christ Episcopal Church in the past is no guarantee that future grant requests will be approved. We encourage all of our grantees to seek funding from diverse sources. We do not wish to create a relationship of dependency with any of our grantees. We will schedule a site visit sometime during the grant period. Please be prepared to tell us specifically how the grant was used and with what results. Questions should be directed to CEC Outreach Chair Amy Wacaster at cecoutreach@gmail.com or 646-265-3323.
