2016 Outreach Grants

The Outreach Grants Committee has completed the 2016 grant review process. Priority was given to organizations meeting our criteria where Redeemer parishioners are involved, either as volunteers doing hands-on work or board/committee members. We distributed 13 grants in December and June totaling $117,675. Our budget was funded from three sources:

  1. Allocation from the Vestry - $35,150
  2. Proceeds from the Friday night Outreach Party at the Merion Cricket Club and the Saturday Christmas Bazaar - $78,000
  3. The Christmas “Joyful Giving” Campaign - $4,525

Grants were made to:

            African Children’s Mission - $6,270

            Camp Dreamcatcher - $2,400

            Church of the Advocate Café – formerly Advocate Soup Kitchen - $5,500

            CONNECT Food Program at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church - $3,000

            Diocesan Summer Youth Camps - $13,500

            ElderNet of Lower Merion and Narberth - $6,570

There is a new poster in the Parish House showing how the allocations break down by category, along with a number of very nice thank you letters from the agencies. The Outreach Grants Committee held meetings from October through May, revised the Grant Application form and process, and met with all agencies that submitted grant applications. 

The Outreach Grants Committee includes Julia DeMoss, Chair; Susan Ayres, Secretary; Carolyn Bennett, Leslie Boris, Stephen Cadwalader, Jan Clarke, Patricia Fowler, Jane Hastings, Carolyn Morris, Sam Morris and Susan Van Allen.
