We had 40 Grant Applications. 16 of which were Leadership Grants, 13 Campus Ministry Grants, 4 Project Grants, and 7 Young Adult Ministry Grants. They total $535,154. We have $133,000 to grant. We are recommending a total of 21 grants be funded in the amount of $132,638.00.
A team of people including the Provincial Coordinators for Campus Ministry, leaders in the area of ministry with young adults reviewed the grant applications, staff, and an Executive Council Member read all the applications. They scored and commented on each application. Each application was read by at least three people. We gathered in person to discern which grants should be funded. That team worked incredibly hard and faithfully to discern each application and I am thankful for their dedication and hard work.
