Grant opportunities for home mission, growth & expansion and capital needs in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis

Through the generosity of the parishioners of our archdiocese, we now have 3 different endowment funds that will support a twice-annual grant awarding process.  This grant process is jointly administered by the Finance Office and the Office of Stewardship and Development of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

Twice a year (spring and fall), the parishes, schools and agencies of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis have an opportunity to apply for grants which will be available from the following 3 endowments:

  1. Home Mission Endowment Fund – used to support parishes and schools that qualify as home missions;
  2. Growth and Expansion Endowment Fund – used to support growth and expansion initiatives throughout the archdiocese in our parishes, schools and agencies; and
  3. The James P. Scott Endowment Fund – made possible by a very generous gift by James P. Scott to be used to support capital needs in the archdiocese.

Combined grant applications are due to the Archdiocese for the 2 grant allocation periods on April 30th and October 31st each year. (See the summary of fiscal year 2016-17 grants)
