Outreach & Service Grants

The Outreach & Service Ministry at First Presbyterian Church is built around the call of the PC (USA) to “reveal God’s grace in places of suffering and need, to resist the forces that tyrannize, and to support the forces that restore the dignity of all.”

Granting Process

One of the ways we live out our calling to be peacemakers at First Church is by supporting organizations and groups whose work aligns with the mission of First Church. Each year, First Church grants about $100,000 to groups in New York City and around the world. In the past three years, grants have ranged from $2,000 – $10,000. 

Our current grant focus is on the following: Welcoming Refugees and Asylum Seekers, LGBTQ Issues, Interfaith Dialogue, Facing Racism, PC(USA) Agency, Environmental Stewardship, and Eradicating Poverty. 

The applications for funding in 2023 are closed. Any grant inquiries received after August 1, 2023 will be considered for funding in fall 2024. If you are interested in applying for funds for 2024, please fill out the inquiry form and someone from our Grants Committee will be in touch in January 2024 with instructions for how to apply.
