World Day of Prayer Grant

Rooted in Faith, Called to Action

Offerings received through the World Day of Prayer transform our prayers into action in the form of project grants empowering women and children in our own country and throughout the world. All regions share in the grants, with consideration given to greatest need.

An application for a project grant will be considered from the following:

  • Canadian organizations supporting local or international initiatives with and on behalf of women;
  • Canadian ecumenical organizations;
  • denominational groups that have ecumenical outreach serving women within the wider community;
  • local women’s groups in Canada

Applications which support program work with women in the following areas will be considered: violence against women, economic justice, health, education, racism, and peace. We encourage projects that:

  • are cooperative and promote self-sufficiency
  • contribute to raising awareness of underlying causes of suffering
  • contribute to women’s empowerment
  • enable women to develop their full potential
  • provide education and training for women

Application Deadline:  March 31, 2020
