Guidelines for Presbytery of Donegal Emergency Loans for Congregations Experiencing Hardship Due to COVID-19
 The Administration Committee and the Leader Team of the Presbytery of Donegal recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic will bring unprecedented challenges to our congregations in all areas of ministry and mission. Some congregations have sufficient cash on hand and unrestricted funds to cover essential operations and payroll until the “New Normal” emerges. Other congregations rely upon weekly offerings to meet their current obligations.
Due to the generosity of contributors past and present, the Presbytery of Donegal is announcing the availability of  Emergency Loans for congregations experiencing immediate financial hardship. Sessions may apply for an Emergency Loan of up to $5,000, at zero percent interest.

 The funds will come first from the Presbytery Warroll Fund, which makes revolving loans available for congregations. If the Warroll Fund is exhausted, several other funds, including the Mission Reserve Fund, can be tapped to meet critical needs of congregations.
