The Administration Committee and the Leader Team of the Presbytery of Donegal recognize that the COVID-19 Pandemic brings the requirement – and the opportunity – to develop new ways to connect in worship, faith formation and community care.
We are happy to announce the initiation of two new grants that are immediately available for sessions.
A copy of this Grant Announcement is available on the website on the COVID-19 Resource Page.
Technology Grants for Congregations or Pastors – up to $500
Grants to expand the technology capacity of a congregation are immediately available in an amount of up to $500. Approved expenses could include licenses for the Zoom videoconference platform, or a camera to record Youtube videos or part of the cost of a tablet for the pastor. Sessions with adequate funds for needed upgrades are asked to refrain from applying for this grant. Either a session or a pastor may apply for this grant.
Pandemic Mission Response for Congregations – Up to $1000
Grants to fund mission initiatives of congregations to serve vulnerable people in their community to provide basic human needs are immediately available in amounts of up to $1000. This might include grocery gift cards instead of food bank items or other immediate assistance. Sessions with adequate funds are asked to refrain from applying for this grant. A committee or team charged with mission oversight may apply for this grant, or the application may be approved by the session.
