Outreach Committee

 

 

The mission of the Social Outreach Committee of St. James Episcopal Church, Baton Rouge, is to dedicate those funds that represent our tithe to the community at large to assist those in great physical or spiritual need. Funding is focused on the areas of greatest need — food, medical services, shelter, and education — for the people of greatest need, delivered by the most effective means.

As an integral part of its outreach mission to the local and diocesan community, St. James Episcopal Church annually awards small grants to Baton Rouge area and diocesan charitable organizations. It is expected that this funding will partially or fully fund a small programmatic effort for these organizations.

We anticipate that funding decisions will be made in August and that funds will be available by check to grantees in September for the grant year beginning October 2016 and ending September 2017.

Successful grantees must submit a stewardship report describing how the funds were spent, how many people were reached, and any other appropriate measures of success six months after program completion but no later than March 31, 2017. If the funded activity is still in progress at that point, an interim report must be completed in order to be considered for next year’s funding, with the final report to follow six months after the activity’s completion.
