Stamp Committee Grants – 2018

A message from the Uniting Church in Australia Synod of NSW and ACT Stamp Committee

The Stamp Committee is requesting applications for grants from congregations in NSW and the ACT for 2018 for specific outreach/community projects to a maximum of $1000 by August 30, 2018.

CRITERIA: All projects are to involve volunteers from the congregation.

Preference is given to projects already up and running and only to “seed projects” if research indicates there is a strong certainty that the project will proceed. Funds may be used for the purchase of equipment, consumables etc. Funds are not provided for building works, day to day operational costs eg electricity, staff costs.

At the annual meeting of the Stamp Committee in September, we plan to distribute over $15,000.

APPLICATIONS: Name of congregation, Presbytery, Project name, Background to the project, outreach/community benefits,
Involvement of volunteers, Resources requested and costs, Bank details. Please send all applications to uniting.stamps@gmail.com in a pdf file by August 30, 2018.

The support of congregations and volunteers in collecting/trimming/sorting of stamps for us to sell is greatly appreciated.

Enquiries: Ruth Mitchell, Business Manager/Secretary.
