The first pilot round of the National Fund for Sacred Places was announced in November 2016 with 14 participating congregations across the country. The next round of the fund is open now, with a deadline to submit a Letter of Intent of May 1, 2017.
More information the fund guidelines and eligibility, as well as a list of the first group of congregations in the fund, can be found at FundForSacredPlaces.org.
A training for many of the first group was recently held at First Christian Church in downtown Fort Worth, Texas. The training was led by Partners for Sacred Places and focused primarily on raising funds for capital projects. Those first participants are pictured below.
