Grant Cycle is Now Open Through December 3, 2021

First Presbyterian Church of Spartanburg is grateful to serve with you in building a more just and loving world in God’s name. We appreciate the important work that you do, and we pray for your ministry throughout the year.

Each year a congregational Mission Committee reviews requests for financial support for many causes. Please carefully read the following information.

  • Funding will be granted to organizations serving Spartanburg County residents in one of the four focus areas of the Faith Initiative to End Poverty: Early Childhood Readiness, Generational Literacy, Living Wage, and/or Neighborhood Isolation. For a description of these areas, please see the attached Request for Proposals.
  • Applying for funding, or receiving prior funding, does not guarantee that the organization will receive a grant.
  • You may be contacted by a member of the Local Missions Committee for a site visit after applications are received and initially evaluated.
  • All grantees will need to submit a nine-month progress report.

If your organization/project addresses one of these four focus areas, we invite you to apply for a grant in our 2022 cycle. Please read the request for proposals for additional instructions and grant requirements.
