Stamp Committee applications for Grants 2022

The Stamp Committee invites applications for grants from congregations in NSW and the ACT for 2022.

Grants are made for specific outreach and community projects (maximum $1,000 per congregation).

CRITERIA

Each project has to be a project of the congregation, supported by the Church Council and must involve volunteers from the congregation.

Preference is given to projects already up and running and to “seed projects” where there is a strong certainty that the project will proceed.

Funds may be used for the purchase of equipment, consumables etc.

Funds are not provided for building works, day to day operational costs eg electricity or staff costs.

At the Annual meeting of the Stamp Committee in November, we plan to distribute $30,000. Once approved by the Synod General Secretary, funds should be available early December.
