The Reformed Partnership Fund, which has provided small grants to member churches for more than two decades, is being put on hiatus while both its funding and effectiveness are reviewed.
No new applications for regular or emergency projects are being accepted.
Decreases in both donations to the Fund and staff capacity to manage the reporting requirements, a shift in strategic goals of the Communion, and concerns that the Fund as currently organized is not as impactful as desired contributed to the decision to undertake this review.
Decisions on the future of the Partnership Fund will be communicated here and directly to WCRC member churches when they are reached.
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.
