Grant Application - Liberation UCC, New and Renewing Church Fund

Liberation UCC was a ten-year old, social justice oriented church that had run entirely on donations for the first decade of it’s existence. I furnished full-service grant writing for their application to the National Office of the United Church of Christ’s New and Renewing Church Fund and was able to secure $40,000 dollars in matching funds—a neat trick as they had only requested $35,000! Liberation went on to reapply for the next cycle and was again awarded $40,000, which was the maximum amount available through this funding opportunity.

My responsibilities for this project included finding the funding opportunity, conducting research, and drafting a proposal. With the exception of one section (noted in the manuscript) all writing is my own.
