Don’t miss out! The Central Washington Catholic Foundation has allocated $45,000 for Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) grants this year.  You can apply for a grant to meet essential needs of your religious education program, to send RE staff to the LA Religious Education Congress, and/or to receive a stipend for your RE Coordinator.

The application process is fairly simple and shouldn’t take you (or your RE Coordinator) much time to complete.  The application deadline is May 29, 2015.  The application forms are available on our website at www.cwcatholicfoundation.org/REgrants.   Call Nancy at 509-972-3732 if you do not have computer access and she will mail forms to you.

The Central Washington Catholic Foundation envisions providing enduring support for Catholic education and ministries in Central Washington.  Our mission is to support Catholic education.  To this end, we provide grants to parishes for their religious education programs and tuition assistance to students enrolled in Catholic schools.  We strongly believe that every Catholic family who wants a Catholic school education for their children should be able to get one, regardless of ability to pay and every Catholic family should be able to learn about Jesus regardless of their local parish’s financial resources.

The Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) grants help parish programs in three ways:

·         $500 stipends (matched by the parish) for RE Coordinators/Directors

·         $750 support for RE staff to attend the annual RE Congress in Los Angeles

·         Grants to support RE programs in various ways from Bibles for the children to curriculum to materials and supplies to AV and computer equipment.

Each parish determines what their needs and resources are and then writes an application if their needs exceed their resources.

For the 2015 grant cycle, there is $45,000 available.  The application period is open and will close on May 29, 2015.  The grant applications are on our website at www.cwcatholicfoundation.org/REgrants.
