This Learning Lab will address how to find funds to support your Creation care actions and projects. 

This Learning Lab offered funding ideas and strategies to support your congregation's vision for healing the earth, air and water. Our guest speaker was Joseph Toolan, Program Assistant for Outreach and Education at the Chesapeake Bay Trust, who shared grant opportunities which are available, how to navigate the grant process and tips for submitting a strong proposal for your project. 

Green Leaders of two congregations shared their grant proposal experience: 
Joann Eastlack from Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, Montgomery Village, and
Rosemary Flickinger, Kadampa Meditation Center, Baltimore, whose congregations successfully submitted and received grant funding. 

Suggested Discussion Questions:

  1. What steps did you learn about navigating the grant proposal process? 
  2. What lessons did Joann Eastlack learn from doing her project proposal?
  3. If you are just starting a project who can you turn to for advice and support?
  4. Is there a small (e.g. a Mini-Grant) or large scale project your team is seeking funding for? 

These webinars are designed to supplement the core Faithful Green Leaders Training, but everyone is welcome to participate.
