Indigenous Ministries RFP

AFC issues $100,000 Request for Proposals (RFP) for Indigenous Ministries

Thanks to an exceptionally generous bequest in support of Indigenous Ministries from an AFC donor, the Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) is pleased to announce a $100,000 Request for Proposals (RFP) in 2022.

“Grants for both ongoing and emerging projects will be considered,” says Dr. Scott Brubacher, Executive Director, AFC. “Category A grants, of up to $5,000 will be considered based on impact and how they support Indigenous communities in a local context,” says Brubacher. “Category B grants of up to $15,000 will be considered based on how they support the overall mission and service to Indigenous communities in a city, diocese, or region.”

Eligible uses of funding include, but are not limited to, administrative expenses, travel costs, equipment, technical costs, remuneration, honoraria, and food. Proposals will be accepted from September 1 to October 1, 2022.

Indigenous ministry programs that have received funding from AFC in the past include: healing and reconciliation initiatives, language revitalization and translations, urban Indigenous ministry projects, bursaries and leadership development, cultural gatherings and traditional teaching.

AFC’s Board of Directors will review proposals in November and announce the grant recipients in early December. Proposals submitted in response to this RFP will not count as one of the three submissions each diocese is allowed per year.
