Faith In/And Democracy Grant, Application Deadline July 1

Posted by PACE on June 3, 2019

At this important moment for our democracy, many civic engagement funders and practitioners have redoubled efforts to bridge social and political divides. Today, Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) is thrilled and humbled to announce the launch of a pilot funding and learning initiative, focused on a largely unexplored connection point for bridge building: the power and potential of faith as a catalyst for civic engagement. The Faith In/And Democracy initiative seeks to uplift efforts to shift divisive perceptions of faith communities and build narratives about the power and potential of faith in democracy and civic life.

Faith In/And Democracy will provide about $300,000 in grant support to 5-7 initiatives whose work explores this driving question: How can faith be a means to bridge divides and foster respect and cooperation in our democracy?  The Request for Proposals is open, and applications will be accepted until July 1, 2019.
