OND Staff Report
The Board of Directors of the Diocese of Crookston Catholic Community Foundation announces the beginning of the Fall 2017 Faith for Tomorrow Grant Cycle. Parishes and Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Crookston were able to begin submitting grant applications on Sept. 28, 2017. Grant applications may be submitted through Nov. 3, 2017. Grant applications submitted after Nov. 3, 2017 will not be considered.
For more information you are invited to go to www.crookston.org/ccf. There you will find information and instructions for preparing a grant application. Pay close attention to the heading for “FFT Funding Priorities,” especially priorities 1, 2 and 4. Priority 3 titled “Catholic School Subsidies” is being attended to in this cycle with $5,000 grants being awarded to each of the eight Catholic Schools in the Crookston Diocese. These grants are awarded through the Catholic Education Endowment held in the Foundation. Catholic schools may still request grants for specific needs that follow the other three priorities.
Grant requests must be done using the 2017 Grant Application on the website. No grant request will be considered without the “Pastor Endorsement Form” also on the website.
The Foundation has made $39,000 available for grants in the current cycle. For budgeting purposes it is recommended, but not mandatory, that grant requests be for projects in the next fiscal year. Projects in the current fiscal year that you deem important but didn’t include in your budgets are acceptable.
