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:

Outreach Grants

Christ Church makes 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 associate rector. 

THE GRANT PROCESS IS OPEN. Please complete the form below no later than December 15 to be considered for a grant in 2021.
