St. Mark’s endowment fund has been established by the generous donations of individuals and families who wanted to make a lasting impact in our church and community.  Starting in 2018, our endowment has reached the capacity to begin making grants.

The deadline for applications is March 31, 2018. Applications are available to the right. Completed applications may be submitted to the church office. The committee will meet to review the grant applications and award grants in April, 2018.

We are accepting applications for two types of grants. The first grant is a scholarship grant and is open to all St. Mark’s seniors who are planning to pursue further education following high school graduation. This education may include college, community college, or trade school. All seniors are encouraged to apply even if they have not finalized post high school education plans. However, proof of acceptance into an education program will be required before the money is given to the student.

The second grant application is available to all active members, committees or groups of St. Mark’s UMC. The purpose of these grants is to help individuals or groups with projects that further the mission of St. Mark’s. This includes, but is not limited to requests to upgrade facilities, develop or continue outreach mission projects, or develop programming to promote the spiritual growth and education of the St. Mark’s congregation.
