The National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW) organization announces it will award up to $50,000 in event-based mini-grants to organizations across the country that host events celebrating the profound and positive impact of Catholic sisters.
NCSW will award mini-grants for amounts up to $1,000 providing groups with additional funding resources to host local events and activities during the annual NCSW, March 8-14, 2016. A myriad for events ideas are welcome and can range from formal to informal, large or small. Past events have included book clubs, service projects, a motherhouse tour, a 5K run and more.
This week-long celebration takes place in conjunction with National Women’s History Month. If inspired, grantees are welcomed to organize an event to reflect the 2016 theme – Working to form a more perfect union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government.
The deadline for submissions is rolling. All grant applications must be received through email or regular mail no later than Jan. 2, 2016 in order to be considered. Recipients of the grants will be announced in January. The grant application is available on the NCSW website. http://www.nationalcatholicsistersweek.org/_resources/NCSW_Mini-Grant_Application_Form.pdf
