Church and Community Collaboration Grant Program

The Metro Ministries, Inc. Board of Directors is very excited to announce a new grant program focused on church and community collaboration. For the program's first year, we are offering a limited number of matching grants of up to $1,000 each to United Methodist Churches in the Central District for programs that connect each church with the faculty or staff of a K-12 school in their respective neighborhoods. These are one-time grants.

The purpose of these grants is to provide an avenue for churches to reach out in love, making connections with schools which serve their area. The projects will be designed to make a positive difference in the lives of others regardless of whether those served will ever be a part of the community of faith.

Examples of what funds can be used for are: classroom supplies, educational materials, teacher training or support, staff morale or volunteer programs. Please don’t let this limit your creative thinking about ways to connect with and support your local teachers – we welcome new ideas! Keep in mind that the focus of your project should be in direct support of teachers and/or staff members.

The application is available on Metro Ministries, Inc.’s website at www.indymetroumc.org. Please submit your completed application by September 1, 2019 via email to metrodirector1923@gmail.com. Grant recipients will be notified by September 30, 2019 with checks distributed by October 4, 2019.

Please direct any questions to Tina McAninch at metrodirector1923@gmail.com or 317-452-4786.

This grants program is just one of the ways Metro Ministries, Inc. connects resources to ministries and ministries to resources. Support for Metro Ministries’ grants programs comes from individual and church donations, fundraising events, and from the Central District of the United Methodist Churches of Indiana.
