Applications are now being received for new project funding from the Rideau Park Foundation Fund for Ministry. Projects eligible for Foundation funds include those which involve experimenting with new or new approaches to ministry, outreach in our community, leadership development, special projects, and property renewal projects. Foundation funds are not intended to meet ongoing operational requirements of current projects/programs. Any member or long-term adherent of Rideau Park United Church may apply, but applications must be sponsored by a committee of the church who will oversee the finances of the project. Approximately $3,150 is available for disbursement in 2019. Applications are due by October 31, 2019 and should be submitted to the Chair of Council, Patricia Whitridge, council@rideaupark.ca. Applications may be submitted electronically or in paper form. For more information on the application process and application forms, please see the church website or contact the church office.
