SUBMITTING A GRANT APPLICATION
We offer a series of professional development workshops for parish-based and parish-supported outreach programs in the Episcopal Diocese of New York. These sessions provide a forum in which to network, ask questions, gain valuable resources, and learn from experts in the field – all with the goal of increasing program sustainability. Clergy, program directors, and volunteers are all invited to participate.
Programs receiving Episcopal Charities’ grants are required to attend at least two workshops per year. The annual schedule includes both webinars and in-person trainings. In-person workshops are held in Poughkeepsie as well as Manhattan.
WE UNITE A WIDE NETWORK OF OUTREACH PROGRAMS
Our network of volunteers, donors, programs and parishes ensures that our neighbors can count on a helping hand. Every day of the week, nearly every hour of the day, an Episcopal Charities outreach program is providing support, education and nourishment to people in need across the Diocese.
Thank you to the thousands of caring volunteers who invested time in their communities and served our neighbors in 2017.
In 2017, 205 people — clergy, staff and volunteers working in our programs — took part in free professional-development training through our Sustainability Institute Workshops.
