The St. Thomas’ Outreach Fund, established in 1987 by parishioner Bob Fernley, makes annual grants to help “jump start” new outreach programs. Many successful outreach initiatives have been initiated with seed money grants from the Fund’s income. Grant requests are reviewed and recommended by the Outreach Committee and awarded by the Fund’s Board of Trustees. Parishioners interested in submitting grant requests, should contact John Kepner 215-858-3414 for further information about grant criteria and how to submit a grant request. Requests for 2012 grants are due by July 31st.
