Faith for Tomorrow fall grant cycle announced

OND Staff Report

The Board of Directors of the Diocese of Crookston Catholic Community Foundation announces the beginning of the Fall 2018 Faith for Tomorrow Grant Cycle. Parishes and Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Crookston may begin submitting grant applications on Sept. 27, 2018.  Grant applications may be submitted through Nov. 2, 2018. Grant applications submitted after Nov. 2 will not be considered.

For more information, go to www.crookston.org/ccf. There you will find information and instructions for preparing a grant application. Pay close attention to the heading for “FFT Funding Priorities” especially priorities 1, 2 and 4. Priority 3 titled “Catholic School Subsidies” is being attended to in this cycle with $5,000 grants awarded to each of the eight Catholic Schools in the Crookston Diocese. These school grants are awarded through the Catholic Education Endowment and the General Endowment. Both endowments are held in the Foundation. Catholic schools may still request grants for specific needs that follow the other three priorities.

Grant requests must be done using the 2018 Grant Application on the website. No grant request will be considered without the “Pastor Endorsement Form” also on the website.

The Foundation has made $51,000 available for grants in the current cycle. For budgeting purposes it is recommended, but not mandatory, that grant requests be for projects in the next fiscal year. Projects in the current fiscal year that you deem important but didn’t include in your budgets are acceptable.
