Trinity Church Wall Street Announces Over $ 9 Million Grants to Faith Communities in the United States, Africa, and Central America – Episcopal News Service


Trinity Church Wall Street has provided grants of more than $ 9 million to denominations in the United States and around the world.

These grants are used to fund projects that ministries financially support their communities, as well as resources for leadership development and training within the Anglican community.

“Trinity understands that our family extends beyond New York City,” said Rev. Phillip A. Jackson, senior priest in charge of Trinity Church Wall Street. “Part of our mission is to ensure that our brothers and sisters around the world can invest in people and places as they lead and serve their communities.”

Trinity’s Mission Real Estate Development initiative works with churches around the world to help them build sustainable resources for the ministry, resulting in $ 3.9 million in grants. These grants focus on expanding projects that meet missionary needs related to the COVID-19 health crisis, completing projects in support of the hardest hit rural communities, and facilitating access to affordable project funding.

The Diocese of Costa Rica received $ 190,000 to convert a diocesan building into student dormitories. The money earned through this project will not only support the ministry, but also help vulnerable families in the community.

Trinity also awarded $ 280,000 the Diocese of Kericho, Kenya Complete a tented safari camp in the remote Masai Mara region for access to electricity, sewer and water. This project will create jobs and the profits will be used for community development programs such as building a church, hospital and school around the camp.

A $ 2.3 million grant to the Church Representatives for Kenya will establish a soft loan fund to help fund local real estate development projects for the Mission. When the loans are repaid, the funds are passed on to new projects, creating a perpetual resource for building financial capacity and missionary impact.

More than $ 5 million in grants will equip faith-inspired leaders, ministers, and lay people with the practical leadership and management skills they need to connect their wards and communities.

Guests will use a $ 200,000 grant to expand a certification program for Black and Latin American faith leaders to be the first responders to Racial Justice.

A US $ 113,000 scholarship was awarded to the Episcopal Diocese of Montana The money will support two conferences scheduled for 2022 and 2023 that will provide training, education, and community to 100 women preparing for leadership roles in the Episcopal Church.

The Leading Women project has a track record of educating and mentoring dynamic, innovative women leaders for faith communities, and we look forward to supporting their next step in identifying and preparing a diverse cohort of women leaders for a rapidly changing church.

Trinity also makes more than $ 10.4 million in grants to nonprofits in New York City.

“As Trinity provides funding for a more equitable and inclusive church in our own neighborhood and city, we also support the ability of other churches to do the same in their communities,” said Neill Coleman, executive director of Trinity Church Wall Street Philanthropies. “We are proud to support and stand by nearly a hundred fellows who are at the forefront of social justice and building thriving communities around the world.”
