Mission Endowment Application Deadline Oct. 1
Applications for the Kathlyn James Endowment Fund and the Gillespie Fund are now being accepted from members of Edmonds UMC. The deadline for each application is October 1, 2019.
Kathlyn James Endowment Fund
The Kathlyn James Endowment Fund provides grants for innovative ministry proposals. Completed applications will provide the committee with substantive information; such as,
- the person/s who will provide direct leadership for the ministry,
- describe how the ministry fits with the EUMC focus on helping families and children in poverty,
- outline the financial expenses of the proposed ministry,
- and highlight how needs for human resources will be met.
NOTE: Priority is given to applications that provide opportunities for hands-on involvement of members of the EUMC church community. If you have any questions, please contact any committee member: Ron Heitritter, Judy Lambert, Lillian Sherman, Kurt Schauermann, or Carol Townsend. The Kathlyn James Endowment Committee looks forward to partnering together with you to share God’s love through serving others.
The Gillespie fund provides grants to ministries already established within the church. Gillespie grants are awarded to outreach ministries that exemplify their commitment to “make disciples” in our community. These grants are intended to fund something extra for the ministry, and not just replace the regular budget.
