Grace Endowment for Prince of Peace Lutheran Church Mission Statement

This endowment was created to strengthen or provide innovation in areas of worship life, spiritual experience, and social action ministries of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church as well as to support ministries that address issues of health, housing, hunger and spiritual education in the local, national and world-wide community.

If you have an idea for a new program at Prince of Peace, or if you know of a community project that fits within the scope of the mission statement below and you’d like to have Prince of Peace provide some financial support, then you can submit an application for grant funding.

On this site you’ll find information on how each application will be evaluated, information on where, when, and to whom an application can be submitted along with a downloadable version of the application.

Anyone can submit an application for grant money through the Grace Endowment Fund for Prince of Peace Church, even if you’re not a member at Prince of Peace. Our goal is to be as open as possible. This money is for doing something new and different!

Submitting an Application

We keep hard-copy applications on the kiosk in the Welcoming Area at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.  The application is also available in PDF format through the link below.



The application asks for basic contact information and the amount requested.  Please also write a proposal to attach to it.  For organizations, please refer to the extended instructions on the application for your proposal.  For simple projects by individuals, the proposal can be fairly simple:  what do you plan to do, what is your budget, how will you document completion. 

Submit the completed application with proposal to:

If you are submitting your application via e-mail, please attach the written proposal in a Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), Text (.txt), or PDF (.pdf) file rather than the sending a long email.

Application Review & Fulfillment

Applications are accepted year-round and held for the next review event.  Your application will be reviewed for completeness shortly after receipt, and you will be notified if any additional information is needed to continue the evaluation process. 

In early spring and early fall, we remind folks that it’s nearly time for to review applications.  Cut-off dates for the spring and fall campaigns are announced in the Faithworks.  The Vision and Ministry Team reviews the applications and available funds, then makes a recommendation to the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church Council.  When approval is received, an announcement is made to the Congregation and to recipients in April and November.

Once recipients are chosen, funds are transferred from the Grace Endowment accounts to active accounts at Prince of Peace for disbursement.  Once those funds become available, outside organizations receive a letter with checks, and internal organizations can request funds directly from the Treasurer through the check request form available at the POP Church Office.

All recipients are expected to send a report of completion within a year, per instructions on the application.  These reports are shared with the congregation to spark more ideas and generate support for the Endowment.

Do you have more questions?  Please send a note to our email, which gets checked on the weekends.
