Dear partners and friends of ELCA World Hunger,
In 2019, ELCA World Hunger is proud to be partnering with 77 ministries across 63 synods and 33 states (plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.) through its Domestic Hunger Grants program. Thank you for your role in supporting this incredible group of partners. This year, we are again counting on you to get the word out about Domestic Hunger Grants to groups that are working through and with ELCA congregations to address the root causes of poverty and hunger. Please feel free to share this email with groups that might be interested in applying for a grant.
The application window for 2020 ELCA World Hunger Domestic Hunger Grants will open April 15! Visit ELCA.org/domestichungergrants to learn more about the grants and how to apply. We invite organizations applying for an ELCA grant for the first time to set up an account in ELCA GrantMaker in advance in order to access the application form immediately once the window opens. If your organization has already registered in ELCA GrantMaker, now is a great time to log back in and confirm that the contact information in the account is up to date.
ELCA World Hunger will be hosting two webinars to review granting priorities and cover the basics of applying. To call in, simply click on the link below for the date of your choice.
