First Church Grants Program Seeks Applicants
The Special Grants Program of First Church in Wenham is a unique and exciting program. It was established in 1996 to support “good works” beyond the church’s existing programs, and it has awarded annual grants every year since.
A few of the recipients from past years for the local area include The Community Giving Tree, Enon Village, ACORD Food Pantry and Wenham Issues of Social Services Help. Global grants included A Light For Zimbabwe, Physicians for Human Rights, Refugee 2nd Chance and MACRO USA Inc.
Applications are typically for fairly specific uses and have supported many eclectic and far-ranging projects. Possibilities are endless. These grants reflect needs within the church and local communities as well as global needs. We feel the mission of Special Grants is reflected in these awards.
Grant applications are now being accepted for 2013. The grant committee will meet late fall and present the applications to the Church Cabinet for approval in January.
The application form is available by calling the Church office at 978-468-4900, or it can be downloaded from the Church’s web site at www.firstchurchwenham.org under the Special Grants tab. The deadline to submit the application is Nov. 15.
