For 2021, the Outreach commission will continue to get input from the Parish about which charities receive money from Trinity. With that in mind, please consider submitting a proposal for an organization which you feel would benefit from our support in the coming year. The request form can be completed and submitted online at the Trinity website or printed off, completed and returned to the church office.
The list of charities supported in 2020 includes: Christopher House, The Fistula Foundation, World Bicycle Relief, DuPage Habitat for Humanity, Our Little Roses (orphanage in Honduras), Cathedral Counseling Center, Expressive Therapies at Lawrence Hall, and Haiti Scholars.
Here are some guidelines:
- Deadline for proposals for 2021 is January 15, 2021.
- Decisions will be made and requestors will be notified of the results by March 1, 2021.
- For this year (2021), the maximum amount to be awarded to any organization will be $500. Requestors are strongly encouraged to work with the Outreach Commission to find ways to raise additional funds or material for the specific charity using as bulletin inserts, announcements during church services, special collections during services, sales of products (if applicable), etc.
- Each monetary award is good for one year; the request can be re-filed in the following year, if desired.
