The ELCIC Women of Faith Fund provides annual grants that encourage and facilitate the Christ-centred ministry of women within the ELCIC and In Mission for Others. This fund was established in 2011 in recognition of the “significant contribution of the women of the Evangelical Lutheran Women (ELW) of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC)”. The fund came from the monies remaining after the dissolution of the ELW. Individuals or groups may make additional donations to the fund. Grants from the ELCIC Women of Faith Fund will be available on an annual basis. The deadline for applications is MAY 1. Applicants will submit their proposals to the Women of Faith Fund Advisory Committee which is appointed by National Church Council. Examples of ELCIC Women of Faith Funds Approved in previous years.
