Q. What happens after I submit my Letter of Inquiry for a Mission Real Estate Development project? 

A. You will receive an email to acknowledge receipt of your Letter of Inquiry (LOI). The Philanthropies team will review your LOI and determine if it aligns with program guidelines. If there appears to be a potential match, you will be invited to submit a full application. Due to limits on the amount of available grant funding in any one year, we must regretfully decline some applications that are for worthy projects and that also fit within our guidelines.

Q. Does a potential grantee have to be affiliated with the Anglican/Episcopal Church?

U.S. applicants are not required to have an existing affiliation with the Episcopal Church, but they must be registered as a 501 (c)(3) or 501 (c)(4) tax-exempt organization or have a fiscal sponsor. If you are not a 501(c)(3) or 501 (c)(4) tax-exempt organization and need to identify a fiscal sponsor, we recommend referring to the NYPLI Fiscal Sponsorship Guide for guidance. Internationally, Trinity Church provides grants to dioceses, provinces, and seminaries within the Anglican Communion.
