Through the Reformed Partnership Fund (RPF) the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) provides small grants to member churches and endorsed organizations to implement strategically impactful, mission-related projects important to the life of a church and its surrounding community, particularly in the Global South.
The WCRC also maintains an Emergency Fund, to which member churches may apply when needing assistance for disaster relief. These grants are intended to strengthen the ties of member churches to the WCRC, as well as meet strategic objectives of both the member church and the Communion as a whole.
The WCRC is currently accepting only applications for emergency funding. Applications for non-emergency projects will be invited again in 2021.
The main source of financial support for the Partnership Fund is through the Waldensian Church’s Otto per Mille fund and a special grant from the Church of Westphalia (Germany), although donations from WCRC member churches, partnership organizations and individuals are periodically received and always welcome.
Churches Helping Churches (Kirchen Helfen Kirchen), a partner organization in Germany, also provides grants to churches for various projects. You can learn more about them here: www.kirchen-helfen-kirchen.de.
