Reformed Partnership Fund

Through the Reformed Partnership Fund (RPF) the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) provides small grants to member churches to implement strategically impactful, mission-related projects important to the life of a church and its surrounding community, particularly in the Global South.

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. Regular projects are funded in an amount up to €25000.

The WCRC also maintains an Emergency Fund, to which member churches may apply when needing assistance for disaster relief (up to €10000). Emergency requests may come at any point, while funds last.

Applications for regular projects are now being received through 30 April 2022 for projects commencing in August (or later) and running through July 2023.

WCRC member churches are invited to apply for funding by completing and returning the forms below by 30 April to partnership.fund@wcrc.eu:

Please note that those who have received funding in the last year are not eligible for funding this cycle. Applicants are limited to WCRC member churches and directly connected organizations.

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.
