Purpose

The purpose of the Special Projects Fund is to help fund small projects created by non-congregational ministries within The Presbyterian Church in Canada (PCC).

Administration

The fund is administered by Canadian Ministries of the Life and Mission Agency of the PCC. The right to grant or refuse requests will be at the discretion of Canadian Ministries on the basis of the priorities of the Life and Mission Agency. In order for applications to be considered, they must be received by April 15. If there are funds remaining after the first review, additional applications will be considered if received by October 15. Preference will be given to first-time applicants.

Conditions of Disbursement

Grants awarded will be modest in nature and will only be provided as funds become available.
Grants will be awarded on a one-time basis for the calendar year that the application was received.
If an application is for capital improvements, a quote must accompany the application.

Expectations After Receiving a Grant

Photographs and a brief report on the project shall be submitted to Canadian Ministries by the end of the year that the grant was awarded. This enables your story to be shared with the denomination. Applicants must add to any literature the following acknowledgement: “Supported in part by a bequest to The Presbyterian Church in Canada.”
