Pandemic Response Grants Now Available

Recognizing the need for immediate discipleship innovation in response to the coronavirus situation, Trellis Foundation is releasing $10,000 in Pandemic Response Grants for 2020. These grants assist with expenses for discipling initiatives responding to the coronavirus pandemic, or spiritual formation needs arising from it, that align with Trellis’ purpose to catalyze biblical, intentional, and innovative discipleship in the Evangelical Covenant Church of Canada [ECCC].

Pandemic Response Grants are available to Canadian Covenant churches and ECCC affiliated ministries who apply, with up to a maximum of $1000 per organization.
