VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 12/3/12)—Important Reminder—There is still time to submit your Letter of Intent (LOI) for this Palmer Grant cycle. Awards will range from $10,000 to $15,000. In partnership with the American Baptist Home Mission Societies, this cycle’s theme is: “Discipleship: Engaging the 18 to 29 Year Old Community.”
We seek to fund special projects of American Baptist Churches USA-related colleges, universities and institutions that positively engage our young adults. Individuals 18-29 are in the “black hole” of church attendance, according to the Barna Group, while, at the same time, struggling with critical life decisions regarding higher education, military service, marriage, procreation, parenting and faith. As the foundation for this and future generations, this age group must not be ignored. Awards will range from $10,000 to $15,000.
The deadline for letters of intent is Dec. 14, 2012. Please do not submit a full grant application at this time. Those who submit a letter will be notified by Jan. 13, 2013, as to whether to complete an application packet. You can access the LOI by clicking the link below:
