Youth in Action Grant Program Update

Dear Friends of Foundations in Faith,

As many of you are likely aware, Foundations in Faith provides grant support to youth and young adult ministries through the Youth in Action grant program, available through the St. John Paul II Fund for Religious Education and Faith Formation. Applications usually go live in early October and are awarded in January of the following year.

Unfortunately, Foundations in Faith will not be providing Youth in Action grants this year. However, you do not need to wait until next February to request grant funding for your youth and young adult ministries.

Foundations in Faith can still support your ministry through its mini grant program. These grants provide between $500 and $2,000 in funding to ministries demonstrating exceptional innovation or exceptional need.

Limited funding for mini grants is available on a rolling basis by invitation only. If you are interested in applying for a mini grant, please reach out to or call (203) 416-1392 to pitch your idea.

Thank you, and we apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you or your ministry.


The Foundations in Faith Team
