THE WARREN DUNNING MEMORIAL
SOCIAL JUSTICE GRANT
Episcopal Community Services
Request for Proposals (RFP)
Warren Dunning worked tirelessly over the years for ECS, for Jubilee Ministries, and in several other capacities, all in the service of serving the least, the last and the lonely. He modeled service to others for Christ. His death leaves a large hole in the life of our diocese. This special grant honors his memory and his ministry.
This is a three-year grant. Up to $5,000 will be granted the first year, with a reduction of $1,000 in each of the subsequent years. This multi-year grant is established in order that a congregation will have the time to develop a plan to sustain the grant’s activity, with their own funding sources, beyond the life of the grant. You will be required to submit an application for years Two and Three, although not as much information will be required.
One new grant will be awarded each year.
The guidelines are purposely short to encourage creativity and innovation for outreach ministries. Responses should be clear and complete and include concrete data to demonstrate the need and achievability of the proposed ministry. The ECS Board intends this grant to reflect:
The ministry must focus on serving one or more of:
If a grant is awarded, the recipient congregation must agree to provide operational, experiential and resource information to other congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, the Episcopal Church, or associated agencies. Recipients also agree to comply with mid-year and end-of-year reporting requirements, and acknowledge that failure to report will result in loss of eligibility to apply for another grant the following year.
