What are your plans for 2022?

Your project may be a good fit for a grant from the Catholic Foundation as well.

Is your parish music director planning to attend a workshop or conference in 2022? Or are they planning ministry formation for all music ministers in the parish? Is your parish planning to bring in a presenter for a parish mission or Lenten program? Are your parish lay ministers or lay staff planning to attend a conference, workshop, or retreat – in person or virtually – in 2022? Are you planning a new religious education or faith formation project for your parish or Catholic school? In the past year, have you realized a need for increased online or digital resources for your school or parish faith formation program? Your project may meet the criteria for an Education Grant from the Catholic Foundation.

Potential applicants are encouraged to closely review the Education Grant guidelines and criteria and consider applying for a grant today!

Grant requests up to $20,000 are being accepted now through September 24, 2021. This is the Foundation’s last Education Grant cycle in 2021.
