Newton Et Cetera Shop invites organizations to apply for their annual Local Giving grants.
Local Giving grants are made available each spring by the Newton Et Cetera Shop board of directors. Application forms may be viewed here and must be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 13, 2018.
Multiple grants will be awarded to selected groups by June 2018, in amounts up to $5,000. Applicants for the Local Giving grants must hold legal nonprofit status and operate out of and serve Newton, North Newton, Hesston, Goessel, Moundridge, Whitewater, Elbing, Halstead or Walton.
Applicants do not need to have a religious affiliation or mission, but they must function in a manner consistent with Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) and be guided by purposes consistent with MCC’s.
MCC is a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches that shares God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice.
MCC partners with local organizations and individuals in more than 50 countries around the world. Its priorities include disaster relief, sustainable community development, and justice and peace-building. A detailed description of MCC may be found at mcc.org.
