Church Philanthropy for Native Americans and Other Minorities: A Guide to Multicultural Funding from Religious Sources. Meiners' Multicultural Grant Guides. Native American Series.
Meiners, Phyllis A.; Sanford, Greg A.
This directory is organized into two sections covering grant and loan programs from religious sources that fund causes related to basic human need, social justice, and self-determination for economically deprived and diverse peoples. The first section describes 67 grant programs from 10 denominations (Baptist, Catholic, Christian Church: Disciples of Christ, Episcopal, Jewish, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Unitarian, and United Church of Christ) and 3 ecumenical organizations (Church Women United, Commission on Religion in Appalachia, and Programme to Combat Racism). The second section contains 34 loan programs offered by eight denominations and a number of ecumenical organizations. For each program the following information is given, when available: complete address and phone number; denominational information such as branch, order, and headquarters; grant or loan dollar range; total annual grant or loan expenditures; fund governing body; grant making or loan committee(s); officers, committee members; special interests; geographic interests; application deadline; sample grants or loans; description and purpose; restrictions; and application procedures. In addition, three indexes list grant and loan programs by denomination; alphabetically; by geographic preference of giving (international, U.S. regional, state, or city); and by programs or subject areas of preferred giving.
