Small Violence prevention grants

Posted by on April 20, 2009

Funding available for youth violence prevention

The Women’s Division of the United Methodist Church’s General Board of Global Ministries offers grants of up to $4,000 each for projects and programs that address the needs of children and young people ages 5-18 in the areas of violence prevention, anti-abuse, and relationship abuse.

Preference will be given to projects that significantly involve women and youth at the grassroots level; demonstrate the ability to raise additional funds from other sources; provide direct and comprehensive services to young people; promote respect for racial and ethnic diversity; and cultivate spiritual lives and values.

The Women’s Division funds small-scale, community- and church-based programs and projects. Groups affiliated with national organizations, hospitals, and organizations with budgets totaling more than $3 million do not normally receive funding. New and existing projects are eligible to apply.

The deadline for proposals is July 1st.  For more information, go here.
