Grace Episcopal Church is accepting applications from local nonprofit agencies to be awarded grants following the annual parish fair.
All proceeds from the event will be given to mission outreach grants. Most grants are $500 or less. Greater consideration is given to applications that would aid a specific project rather than simply aid ordinary operating funds. Application forms may be picked up at the church office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
Information should include the name of the agency, address, phone number and contact person, the services the agency provides, purpose and need of the grant requested, and the amount requested. The request should also include a copy of the group’s 2011 budget with sources of income and expected expenditures and signatures of the program manager and executive director. Applicants should mail the information to the Mission Outreach Committee, Grace Church in the Mountains, 394 N. Haywood Street, Waynesville, NC 28786.
