Ranhorne Memorial Trust Grant Application

The Ranhorne Memorial Trust was created in 1980 in memory of Lee and Mary Ranhorne as a result of their bequest to the church. Its purpose is to advance the mission of the church in the world, the community and among its membership over and above the amounts customarily budgeted out of regular annual giving.

The Grants Committee will be accepting applications from September 1, 2019 until October 15, 2019, to fund projects that reflect and enhance our Church’s mission in this community and beyond.

The grant procedure requires that all applications be reviewed each year. The awarding of a grant one year does not carry over from year to year, nor does funding in one year guarantee funding in future years.

Grant requests will NOT be approved for items that would normally be part of the annual church budget. For mission trip applications, priority will be given to church members who have not previously participated in Mission trips.

The Trust Board will be selecting among the applications submitted, so all interested parties are encouraged to make their causes known. Applications may be obtained from the Church office.
