Have you heard about the Resource Grant from the Center for Congregations? Matt Burke, Northeast Director and Education Director shared information about the Center and Resource Grant.
With an office in Fort Wayne, the Center for Congregation’s mission is to “strengthen Indiana congregations by helping them find and use the best resources to address their challenges and opportunities.” One such resource is the Resource Grant.
The Resource Grant is to assist “Indiana congregations find and use the best resources.” The purpose of the grant is to “increase your congregation’s capacity to accomplish a new goal.” Funds can go to items like computers, consultants, or even attending professional development. The Resource Grant is $1 for $1 matching and up to $15,000. Grant eligibility starts off with a Center of Congregation staff member and a congregational representative conversation.
Check out their FAQ page for more on the Resource Grant. However, do not stop there. The Center for Congregations offers other services too (and most free of charge due to a gift from the Lilly Endowment Inc.). The other two primary service offerings are resource consulting and education programs.
