American Baptist Churches USA Office of the General Secretary welcomes applications by September 1 for Matthew 25 Grant awards.
The Grant was created through the monetary gifts of a generous donor whose primary wish is to help ameliorate poverty. The ABCUSA Matthew 25 Grant fund was established to respond to this donor’s generosity.
The application process is structured to help small ministries with limited staff time. Each applicant will need to complete the form, explain the need for and uses of the awarded funds, submit a budget for the ministry, and finally complete a report with stipulations detailing progress and outcomes related to the use of the grant.
Please note that changes have been made to the application criteria for the 2018 Grant cycle. Applications should be for a direct ministry of an ABC church in good standing with the region. Cooperative ministries with outside organizations are not eligible at this time.
