PCD Fall 2022 Chalice Lighter Call - Archived

Chalice Lighter Invitation for Proposals
Is your community expanding your welcome?
Can we provide each other financial support for our efforts?
If your answers are YES!, please submit a proposal for the upcoming PCD Chalice Lighter call, and sign up to be a Chalice Lighter!

Who can propose?
Any UU congregation or community in Northern California, Hawaii, and North Western Nevada.

What kinds of projects do Chalice Lighter grants support?
Any project that expands our welcome and removes barriers to participation in our life saving movement, especially projects for which a little support from neighbors, financial and otherwise, would make a large difference in outcome.
There is more background information on the PCD Chalice Lighter program on the PCD website which now contains mostly historical information.

What is the size of a Chalice Lighter grant?
The Fall 2022 call will be able to provide grants from $500 to $25,000.

Who decides which proposals will be funded?
The PCD Board will make a list of one or more projects to fund through the Winter 2022 Chalice Lighter call for donations. The Board’s goal will be to optimize the impact of the $25,000 or so that we expect to have available.

When will funds be disbursed?
Grants will be awarded in April, 2023.
