Zion Endowed Benevolence offering grants

GOWRIE – The Zion Endowed Benevolence Team of Zion Lutheran Church, Gowrie, is soliciting grant applications for benevolent needs to be considered for 2014 distributions.

The purpose of the Endowed Benevolence Program is to extend and enrich the kingdom of God by witnessing in word and deed to people in need both directly and through organized efforts or organizations, especially those not having their own planned giving programs. This program is not intended to provide support for capital expenditures – $23,000 will be granted to individuals in need and/or organizations that assure benevolence grant utilization.

Applications must be received by April 15. Grant awards will be announced April 20.

Grants are approved on a year-to-year basis and are not automatically renewable. Multiyear requests are not considered.

Write or call for an application packet or more information to Zion Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 63, Gowrie, IA 50543 or 352-3645.
