MISSION GRANTS Southern California Nevada Conference: Can we help make your vision a reality?

MISSION GRANTS
Southern California Nevada Conference
United Church of Christ

Perhaps you are furthering your education or developing a new mission/outreach project at your church.  If so, perhaps a SCNCUCC Mission Grant might help make your vision a reality!

Mission grants are made possible by donations to the Southern California Nevada Conference from individuals, congregations, and foundations.  As part of the Conference, you, your congregation, or your SCNCUCC-related group are invited to discern how God is still speaking to you and develop your mission! In order to help you further your mission, you are invited to apply for a SCNCUCC Mission Grant.

Mission Grant applications are accepted on a continual basis and are reviewed by a sub-committee of the The Loving Community Mission Team of the SCNCUCC Board of Directors. You are invited to apply for one grant per calendar year for a particular project. You may apply for multiple grants in the same year for multiple projects.

Grants are reviewed and awarded based on the following considerations:

Availability of funds
Consistency with SCNCUCC mission priorities and intended uses of the particular mission grant fund to which you are applying
Clarity of purpose and scope of project
Fair and reasonable dispersal of funds to various individuals, groups, and congregations across the Southern California Nevada Conference

If your grant is approved, you will receive an award letter from the office of the Southern California Nevada Conference.  Thank you and we look forward to hearing how God is still speaking through you!
