The forms are in Word format and should be filled in electronically if possible. Applications should be as clear and comprehensive as possible in order to facilitate a methodical and measured assessment of the applications by the Grants Committee. Full instructions to applicants are provided on the application forms.
To help you assess whether or not you have an appropriate cause to justify making a grant application, the following is a non-exhaustive list of possible causes:
- Evangelisation Groups
- Evangelisation Projects or Initiatives
- Missionary’s living expenses
- Pilgrimages to Church-recognised pilgrimage sites
- Scholarships relating to Evangelisation
- Building related projects that have a clear purpose in the New Evangelisation
You will find on our website that we have listed the many groups who have received funding in the past so that you can see all the wonderful work that has taken place: https://www.thenewevangelisationtrust.ie/previous-grants
Preference is given to specific causes where it is demonstrated by the Applicant that funding from The New Evangelisation Trust will make the difference between the Cause proceeding or not. It is also preferable that the Applicant can demonstrate that their Cause has other sources of funding to supplement any funding that The New Evangelisation Trust may grant.
Please note that The New Evangelisation Trust cannot be responsible for any costs that an applicant incurs in relation to the preparation of any grant application.
We look forward to hearing from you.
