Endowment Committee

Please stay tuned for when we will begin accepting grant proposals for 2024

Through the offering of financial support to individuals and organizations, this committee is ‘linking lives in the love of Christ.’

Beginning in 2022, we ask all grant applicants to use our electronic application. For instructions, supportive information, and the link to our electronic application, please click the link below.

AS LONG AS YOU KEEP THE INTERNET BROWSER TAB WITH YOUR (IN-PROGRESS) E-APPLICATION OPEN, YOUR RESPONSES SHOULD REMAIN AS YOU ENTERED THEM. Accordingly, please enter answers in one sitting or keep the e-form open on one of your browser tabs until you are ready to click “Submit.”

The first meeting when our Endowment Committee will consider grant applications for the 2023 cycle is March 22 and our committee typically meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday. Please direct any questions to our parish office, 989-631-2260.

St. John’s Endowment Committee considers grant applications from its neighbors near and far, all over the world, who demonstrate a will and ability to carry out God’s call and provide the information our application requires. The minimum amount requested must not be less than $1500. We actively seek appropriate “linking” projects to fund and encourage parishioners and others to approach us with ideas/ proposals.
