It’s here! World Day of Prayer 2014 and our 2014 Grant Application! Read more below on the kinds of projects WDP USA will fund this year, or download an application. Grant Applications are due on Sunday June 1, 2014.
2014 Focus Areas:
This year, the women of the World Day of Prayer Committee of Egypt wrote the world day of prayer service. We will be especially focused on making grants to organizations in Egypt, and to domestic and international organizations that address the areas the women of Egypt have identified:
- Clean water
- Girls’ education
- Interfaith cooperation and dialogue
- Poverty, Migration and Refugees
All requests for WDP USA funding should:
- Reflect the mission of World Day of Prayer, USA
- Affirm the worldwide and ecumenical concern for justice, peace and the integrity of creation
- Provide services and/or effective advocacy for under-served and marginalized populations, particularly women and children
- Benefit the target population without regard to religious affiliation
With respect to project support, WDP USA prefers not to fund: administrative salaries, benefits and expenses, utilities, rent and insurance. Capital expenditures are generally not considered unless they are central to the specific goal of the project.
