2014 MDG Grant Process Now Open

by the Rev. Lucretia Jevne, Chair of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California's Millennium Development Goals Committee, Priest in Partnership, St. Brigid's, Rio Vista

Thanks to the generosity of the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, 0.7% of our diocesan income is reserved for grants to congregations to help make poverty in the world a thing of the past, by supporting projects that fulfill the Millennium Development Goals (a full list of these goals appears at the end of this article). These projects should foster spiritual growth and involvement within your congregation, while working towards at least one of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The Millennium Development Goals Committee is pleased to announce the opening of this year's grant process. The grant deadline is 12:00 p.m. on Monday, July 14, 2014. 

The 2014 MDG Grant Application is available online at www.norcalepiscopal.org/millennium-development-goals.
