PIV now accepting
Constable Fund applications
Province IV is accepting applications for grants from the 2017-2018 Constable Fund, which provides funding for ministry projects not included in The Episcopal Church budget, particularly proposals that involve religious education.
Province IV, like the church's other eight provinces, may recommend one grant proposal. October 15 is the deadline for ministry groups within Province IV to submit an application; the Province IV Executive Committee will review all applications received by that date, and in turn, offer one recommendation to the Constable Fund by its deadline of November 1.
Please submit Province IV applications to Gene
Willard, Administrator, at his email: email@example.com.
