The United Church of Canada and the United Church of Canada Foundation jointly run the Seeds of Hope Granting Program. This program accepts applications and provides grants twice a year.
Generous donors have made gifts to support the education, continued learning and scholarship of United Church ministers – ordained and diaconal – and ministry students. They have also established trusts to recognize excellence in teaching and theological scholarship.
Through bequests and outright gifts, generous donors to The United Church of Canada and The United Church of Canada Foundation have provided for the future of church by creating trusts and endowments.
These trusts and endowments provide grants that fall into the following categories:
- Lectureships and Research or Educational Bursaries
- Programs for Seniors
- Programs for Children/Anti-Poverty
- More General Uses
