Outreach Grant Committee

Description:

St. Francis Parish has a strong commitment to the needs of the poor on an international, national and local level. We participate in activities through volunteering and financial donations to the ministries that reflect our values as Catholics and the mission of St. Francis of Assisi Parish.

Activities:

Parishioners have an opportunity to contribute through the monthly envelope “St. Francis Parish Outreach.”

Funds are distributed annually to organizations which reflect the following criteria:

· Is consistent with the Gospel and Catholic Social Teaching.

· Empowers parishioners to involve themselves in some work of compassion.

· Makes a significant impact on the Community.

· Allows follow up to demonstrate how funding was used in the previous year.

A committee of parishioners is responsible for reviewing criteria, determining priorities for funding, distributing funds, and follow-up
to ensure funds have been used
by the organization in accordance
with above criteria.

Time Commitment:

Members meet several times in the beginning of the calendar year.
