Mission Funding Criteria
Mission partners are selected and reviewed annually.
New missions may submit an application for funding until Jan. 15.
All applications are submitted to the Missions and Outreach team for review.
Existing mission partners submit annual reports which are also evaluated for continued alignment with our funding criteria.
The Finance Committee meets in February every year and informs the Missions and Outreach team how much money they have to allocate to mission partners.
The Missions and Outreach team makes funding decisions at the March meeting for the calendar year based on the adopted mission funding criteria detailed below. Disbursements are paid in quarterly installments to our mission partners.

The mission partner application is available here. Please review the mission funding criteria below before submitting an application.
