Did you know that St John the Divine tithes? Ten percent of the general operating receipts goes to the Outreach Fund. The vestry asks the outreach committee to consider grant requests from Episcopal ministries and local non-profit organizations in which our members are actively involved, as well as the rector's recommendations for grants to seminaries, and to determine the allocation of these funds.

The Outreach Fund provides financial support to organizations that are spreading the love of Jesus Christ by addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our neighbors, doing God’s work in our city. The variety is incredible, stretching from infant formula to senior care; from summer camps for needy children to reducing prisoner recidivism; from inner-city Christ-based schools to universities and seminaries; from housing indigent adults to helping the mentally ill.

For more information about the grant process, contact Greg Buffone, gbuffone@sjd.org.
