Announcing Application for Easter Special Offering Gifts

Plymouth Church is humbled in gratitude for all that we have freely received from God. We continue to grow in generosity by giving to the less fortunate food, clothing, furniture and money. We want our monetary gifts to flow out from Plymouth Church and into the hands of organizations or initiatives serving people most in need and that works toward social and/or economic justice.

It is in this spirit that the Plymouth Church Board of Benevolences is now accepting applications from Metro Des Moines area nonprofit agencies for its Easter Special Offering gifts. These are modest gifts, where the amount gifted depends on the total Easter collection and typically ranges from $3,000 to $4,500. These are a one-time gift and requires a report back to Plymouth’s Board of Benevolences upon utilization of the funds, but no later than six months following receipt. This report should include the impact of the awarded gift and quantify persons served.

As a Just Peace Church, the Board of Benevolences seeks grant applications from non-profit organizations with projects that identify a need that will facilitate social justice for clients or an obstacle that restricts clients from obtaining economic stability. Gift applications for Plymouth’s Easter Special Offering are due March 15, 2019 and can be downloaded from the Board of Benevolences on the Plymouth Church website, or by clicking here.
