Westminster Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, VA, invites proposals to be supported from its Mission Endowment Fund. Funding for 2017 is anticipated to be roughly $18,000, to support innovative projects that fulfill our mission of building a more just and peaceful world. Selected proposals are eligible for several years of funding, assuming suitable progress toward the goals is evident.
The committee seeks proposals that are transformative for the people served and invite engagement of members of our worshipping community as well. We hope our support will be more than monetary, and that projects such as these can become yeast for a mission-driven congregation.
Westminster Presbyterian is a congregation formed in 1938 to minster to the University of Virginia community. We think of ourselves as a socially progressive Christian community, currently comprised of about 600 members. We are active locally and internationally in many causes through congregational financial support and volunteerism, but feel a call to serve even more through expanded engagement of our members.
Proposals should describe the project objectives, should include a budget, and identify assessment methods. Proposals should not exceed three pages in length, and should be addressed to
