The Dakotas United Methodist Foundation has Ministry Development Matching Grants for churches/ ministries in the Dakotas Conference.
Requirements for grants are as follows:
That the grants be for new (within the last five years) or emerging ministries.
There will be at least 12 grants available at $500 and two at $1000.
That the local church/ministry demonstrates a local match of the grant amount, up to $500 or $1000.
That the local church/ministry demonstrates how the grant will assist in growing the work of the Christ and the Church in the Dakotas.
Grant requests for program or staff enhancement will be given priority over equipment or facility needs.
Grants review will begin Aug. 1, 2012 and funds sent shortly thereafter.
