SDOP Workshop


Need a grant for your grassroots group?

You could be eligible for a grant from the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People:
  • Are you involved in a community growth project based on human dignity and self-reliance?
  • Are you a working partner in a low-income, grassroots group searching for long-term solutions to systemic problems that keep people poor and oppressed?
  • Is your project or program controlled by those who benefit from the collective effort?
  • Does your program empower those involved in the project?
  • Can you tell us why you need additional funding?

If you can answer “yes” you may be eligible to apply for a grant from the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People. No denominational connection is required.
