ELCIC Women of Faith Fund

The ELCIC Women of Faith Fund provides annual grants that encourage and facilitate the Christ-centred ministry of women within the ELCIC and In Mission for Others.

This fund was established in 2011 in recognition of the “significant contribution of the women of the Evangelical Lutheran Women (ELW) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC)”.

The initial contributions to the fund came from the residual amount remaining after the dissolution of Evangelical Lutheran Women Inc. (ELW). Individuals or groups may also make additional donations to the fund.

Grants for the ELCIC Women of Faith Fund will be available on an annual basis. The annual deadline for applications is MAY 1. Applicants must submit their proposals for review and consideration by an advisory committee appointed by National Church Council.
