Through our St. Boniface Endowment, St. Boniface Church plays an important role in carrying out Christ’s ministry in the world. 
Grants awarded since 1996 -- totalling over a $600,000 dollars-- have enabled this parish to reach people and projects in our community and far beyond that are working to lift up the least among us.  Projects have ranged from mentoring for youth in our community, to wells for clean water, to shelter for those with nowhere to call home, food for those unsure of where their next meal will come from, care for the sick and elderly, mission trips, and planting new churches.
Recent St. Boniface grants have aided organizations addressing homelessness, hunger and child safety.  Organizations we have supported include: All Faiths Food Bank, ALSO Youth, Brothers and Sisters Doing the Right Thing, Face of HopeFamily Promise of Sarasota, Guardian ad LitemManasota Operation Troop Support, Meals on Wheels, Resurrection House, Rise Against Hunger, Sarasota United for Responsibility and Equity (S.U.R.E.), Solar Circle, Take Stock in Children and Visible Men Academy

Our grants touch lives around the globe!
This Fall the Grants & Outreach Committee continued its support to key community issues important to St. Boniface parishioners -- child protection, homelessness and hunger -- with its grant recommendations.  St. Boniface is pleased to continue its on-going support of the work of All Faiths Food Bank, Face of Hope, Guardian ad Litem, Meals on Wheels, Solar Circle, Take Stock in Children and Visible Men Academy. 
The committee also mobilizes the parish to provide hand-on work in the above areas.  Recent projects have served the Sarasota community and beyond with volunteer efforts on behalf organizations such as All Faiths Food Bank and Rise Against Hunger.
Grants are made possible thanks to parishioner bequests and outright gifts to the Endowment Fund.  For more information of such legacy giving, contact Betsie Danner.  For more information on grants application, contact Helen Francis.
