Seeding Future-Oriented Giving
Funding for these grants has been made possible through the Eloise Way Kemner Fund and other generous donors just like you. Together these gifts have made $30,000 available for supporting innovative projects during this spring 2021 round of Imagining Renewal Microgrants. We pray that this generosity will seed further generosity from those who value this ministry and have experienced its impact on their community.
The Imagining Renewal fund exists to support innovation and creative care for our communities. Each awardee organization will be asked to prayerfully consider how in the future they may aspire to join in this generosity and give back to the Imagining Renewal Fund. Microgrant recipients are asked to aspire to give back at least 10% of the grant monies awarded in the year following the completion of their proposed project.
This donation could be provided by donors within the awardee’s community inspired by the impact of their project, by a fundraiser they organize, or by funds that the awardees have the ability designate. A concern over being able to donate back to the fund should not deter any individual or organization from proposing their project and does not have any bearing on eligibility.
