The Outreach and Service Ministry at First Presbyterian Church is built around the call of the PC (USA) to “reveal God’s grace in places of suffering and need, to resist the forces that tyrannize, and to support the forces that restore the dignity of all.”
At First Church, our current grant focus is on the following: Welcoming Refugees and Asylum Seekers, LGBTQ Issues, Interfaith Dialogue, Facing Racism, PC(USA) Agency, Environmental Stewardship and Eradicating Poverty.
We have a rolling grant application and approval process that runs throughout the year. To be considered for a grant, the inquiry form found below must first be completed and submitted. If you are selected for the next round, you will be sent a full application with submission instructions. Once the full application is received, the grants committee will review the application and you will be notified as soon as a final decision has been made.
Each year, First Church awards a variety of grants to PC(USA) related agencies and NYC nonprofit organizations that are addressing issues related to our current areas of focus.
