Grant Program

Granting Process
At First Church, we have a rolling grant application and approval process that runs throughout the year. To be considered for a grant, the inquiry form found below must first be completed and submitted. If you are selected for the next round, you will be sent a full application with instructions for submission. Once the full application is received, the grants committee will review the application and you will be notified as soon as a final decision has been made.

Each year, First Church awards a variety of grants to PC(USA) related agencies and NYC nonprofit organizations that are addressing issues related to our current areas of focus.

Focus Areas:

  • Welcoming Refugees and Asylum Seekers
  • LGBTQ Issues
  • Interfaith Dialogue
  • Facing Racism
  • PC(USA) Agency
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Eradicating Poverty
The Outreach and Service Ministry at First Presbyterian Church is built around the call of the PC (USA) to “reveal God’s grace in places of suffering and need, to resist the forces that tyrannize, and to support the forces that restore the dignity of all.”
