UNION PRESBYTERIAN FUND PROJECT SOLICITATION
When the Union Presbyterian Church members transferred to the First Reformed Church in 2015, they brought with them undesignated money in the Union Presbyterian Church Foundation that became the Union Presbyterian Mission Fund. The mission fund was established by the First Reformed Church to provide a legacy to Union Presbyterian Church by supporting mission projects locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Currently 5% of the mission fund is used annually to distribute to mission projects selected by the Union Presbyterian Mission Fund Committee. It is anticipated that the fund will generate between $25,000 to $30,000 annually.
The Union Presbyterian Mission Fund Committee has $25,000 remaining available in 2019 to fund not-for-profit mission projects. It has already distributed $6,000 to the Schenectady Community Ministries Summer Lunch Program. The committee requests project proposals from members and friends of the church. The project may be local (within Schenectady County); regional (within the boundaries of Albany Presbytery & Regional Synod of Albany); national / international; and valued $1,000 to $5,000. Please submit your proposed project(s) no later than April 30, 2018 to Liz Mastrianni (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the FRC office. The UP Mission Committee has adopted the FRC “Unified Mission Funding Request Form” for not-for-profit agencies to use for project proposals. Hardcopies of the form are available in the FRC office and HERE.
