Q. Does a potential grantee have to be affiliated with the Anglican/Episcopal Church?

A. Organizations applying to the domestic grant program are not required to have an existing affiliation with the Episcopal Church. U.S.-based organizations must be registered as a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt organization or have a fiscal sponsor. Internationally, Trinity Church provides grants to dioceses, provinces, and seminaries within the Anglican Communion.

Q. What is the maximum funding amount?

A. The amount requested should correspond to a realistic assessment of the cost of the program. We encourage applicants to ask for enough funds to support the desired outcomes of the project, without exaggerating its funding needs.

Q. What is the funding time-frame?

A. The Trinity Grants Program’s goal is to help our partners develop sustainable projects. Your program officer will discuss your anticipated timeline for sustainability.

Q. Does our project have to be in a certain part of the country/world?

A. There are limitations on the type of grants that will be considered at different locations in the world. Please read the guidelines carefully to determine if your project fits within Trinity’s funding areas for your geographic location.

Q. What happens after I submit my grant inquiry?

A. You will receive an email to acknowledge receipt of your inquiry. Trinity Church Wall Street Grants staff will review your inquiry and make a determination based on the specific program guidelines, whether you will be invited to submit a full application. Due to our funding limitations, we must decline some proposals for worthy projects that fit within our guidelines.

Q. I’m not quite sure my project is ready for review. Can I get some help?

A. Please e-mail, and the appropriate program officer will be glad to discuss your project.

Q. I’m not sure I know how to write a proposal. Can you send me other proposals that you have received so I can use them as examples?

A. No. Confidentiality prevents us from sharing other proposals. However, program officers can offer guidance on how you might approach an application.
