We originally sent this information out in the February 29, 2012 grant alert. But we know more nonprofits will be interested, AND, due to overwhelming response, there has been a venue change for the information sessions.
Technology and Ministry Grants Initiative
Information Sessions Moved to Allow More Attendees
Due to overwhelming response, the Technology and Ministry Grants Initiative (TMGI) information sessions have been moved to a different location, allowing for more attendees. The sessions are now at Roberts Park United Methodist Church, 401 N. Delaware St., Indianapolis. Registration for the information sessions is back open.
Congregations outside of Marion, Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Morgan and Shelby counties are invited to attend an information session at 3 p.m. Monday, March 26, 2012 or 1 p.m. Thursday, April 12, 2012 to learn about this new grants initiative.
TMGI is for congregations wanting to explore available technologies and how to use these tools. The initiative includes an education component and financial support in the form of matching grants. Led by Center staffers Nancy Armstrong and Aaron Spiegel, participants will learn more about technology and ministry, develop plans to address technology needs unique to their congregations, and receive assistance and a grant of up to $30,000 toward implementing their own technology plans. Up to 30 congregations will be accepted into the program.
This program is for congregations outside of Marion, Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Morgan and Shelby counties. Congregations in these counties were eligible for a previous TMGI program.
Those interested should attend a TMGI information session. Sessions are at 3 p.m. Monday, March 26, 2012 and 1 p.m. Thursday, April 12, 2012 at Roberts Park United Methodist Church, 401 N. Delaware St., Indianapolis. Registration is limited to two people per congregation.
