Thanks to Lilly Endowment Inc.’s generosity, Financial Shalom has received $250,000 in additional funding to meet the pressing needs of CRCNA pastors who have been most harshly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.* More funds are available with your help.
The initial $250,000 Lilly Endowment Inc. funding will be disbursed as soon as possible, but there are more needs than can be funded at this time. We will offer additional rounds of funding as money becomes available. This is why your gift is so important to our pastors.
Your gift will be doubled! We are pleased to share that Lilly Endowment Inc. is extending a match opportunity. Financial Shalom stands to gain up to an additional $500,000 to meet our pastors’ needs during this extraordinary season of ministry. For every dollar we raise, Lilly Endowment Inc. will match it up to $250,000. This is a wonderful opportunity to support the denominations’ pastors and provide them the relief and restoration they need.
Your gift will bless more pastors who have been harshly affected by the pandemic. We need your help NOW. Your gift is critical to our ability to help pastors.
If you have questions about this grant opportunity or would like to understand it more, please feel free to contact us at [email protected] and will be happy to answer your questions.
*Financial Shalom will distribute funding primarily through Pastor Restoration grants (to respond to pastoral burnout resulting from COVID-19 and associated challenges) and Pandemic Relief grants (to respond to economic setbacks resulting from and exposed by COVID-19 and associated challenges). Both grants are designated for pastors ordained in the CRCNA.
