Memorials & Endowment Committee 2017 Grant Cycle

Application Deadline: June 16

Is there a mission or faith based activity you are passionate about that is not sponsored through the CPC budget? If so, a grant from the Memorials & Endowment Team is a great way to get needed funds for your project.

M&E grants exist to provide support for faith-based initiatives. These initiatives must align with the overall purpose of the Endowment Fund-to provide opportunities for members to support the benevolent, educational, and mission work of the whole church.

M&E grants are one-time, non-recurring gifts and are not intended to replace existing budgets or support ongoing projects. Any CPC member may apply. Not sure if a certain initiative falls within the grant guidelines? Please contact one of the committee members with this or any other questions regarding the application process.

Committee members are Ben Kadlec (Team Lead), Donna Adkins, Jim Bowdish, Barbara Carew, Brian Short and Meredith McGill.

Application deadline is Friday, June 16. Approved grants will be announced by August 1, with funds disbursed by September 1 (or as needed thereafter).

Grant applications as well as policy guidelines are located in the church office and online at www.carypresbyterian.org.

The work is completed and the new church sign is now in place! The dedication of the sign will be after Sunday worship service on June 4.

The dedication will take place immediately after the 11:00 service, and prior to our church picnic.
