SAINT BONIFACE OUTREACH GRANTS
Through our Foundation for Outreach and our Endowment, Saint Boniface plays an important role in Christ’s ministry in the world. 
 
Grants awarded since 1996 -- nearly a half million-- have enabled this parish to reach people and projects in our community and far beyond working to lift up the least among us.  Projects have ranged from seminarian scholarships, 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.
 
Currently the Grants Committee supports six local agencies addressing homelessness, hunger and child safety -- areas of concern based on parishioners' response to our survey.  The selected agencies are: All Faiths Food Bank, Family Promise of Sarasota, Guardian ad Litem, Meals on Wheels, Resurrection House and Take Stock in Children.  Internationally, they support Solar Circle, improving the health, safety and productivity of the Masasi villagers in Tanzania through their barter-system solar powered ovens and lamps..
 
Future applications will be reviewed periodically.  To have your proposal considered, submit it by October 7, 2016.

THE WORK OF BONIFACE GRANTS
This Fall the Grants Committee continued its support to key community issues important to St. Boniface parishioners:  child protection, homelessness and hunger.  St. Boniface is pleased to continue its on-going support of the work of All Faiths Food Bank, Family Promise of Sarasota, Guardian ad Litem, Meals on Wheels, Resurrection House and Take Stock in Children.  In addition, we are happy to provide funding to Brothers and Sisters Doing the Right Thing, El Hogar, Operation Jabez, Brookside Middle School and the St. Boniface Preschool.
 
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 Suzanne Gregory.
