Each year the Anglican Foundation of Canada sets aside funds to encourage innovative projects through a Request-for-Proposals process. In celebration of the 60th Diamond Anniversary of the Anglican Foundation in 2017, AFC is setting aside $60,000 to promote innovative ministry projects. Four (4) one-time grants of up to $15,000 will be given to a parish or diocese within the Anglican Church of Canada.
The Anglican Foundation is requesting proposals that enhance and transform parish ministry within the Anglican Church of Canada. Grants will be offered for projects that are new and never-before undertaken by the applicant parish or diocese and that would not otherwise be launched apart from grant funding. Proposals should demonstrate creativity and innovation in order to augment parish ministry.
Grants will not be given to contribute to an ongoing project budget or to contribute toward ongoing salaries or stipends (e.g., a youth ministry leader, a curacy, etc.).
Proposals must meet all of these criteria:
- a new project to be launched in 2018
- total project budget does not exceed $30,000
- AFC grant request may comprise anywhere from 50–100% of the project budget
- is endorsed by a diocesan bishop in the Anglican Church of Canada
Submission deadline is September 1, 2017.
The AFC Board of Directors will review proposals in November 2017 and announce those receiving grants in early December. Proposals submitted in response to this request do not count as one of the three submissions each diocese is allowed per year.
