Grants for Congregations
Thanks to the generous support of individuals and congregations, MALIM is able to provide funding for mission outreach projects conducted by congregations and organizations who are members of and geographically located within the Southeastern District-LCMS.
MALIM seeks to fund innovative and creative projects that align with our Core Values and that reach out to communities and groups in new ways. In evaluating grant applications, MALIM considers, among other factors:
Will the project increase mission outreach to the community in which the congregation/organization is located?
Does this project include ministry to people who have not been traditionally served or a new group that has not previously been reached? (For example, people with limited incomes and opportunities, people of color, ethnic groups in the community, frail elders, people with disabilities, etc.)
Grants are awarded on a one-time basis for funding requests up to $10,000. MALIM does not accept unsolicited grant applications. Initial inquiries are accepted through the “Contact Us” form below. If your proposal meets MALIM’s grant criteria, you will be invited to complete a detailed grant application. Grant applications are reviewed on a bimonthly basis (approximately every eight weeks).
