LAVIM mission grant money available to teams for project costs

September 29, 2014

Are you planning to lead a mission team in the next few months? We want to support you!

Louisiana Volunteers in Mission (LAVIM) has set aside funding to help teams with their mission project costs. These funds are available as grants of up to $500 per project and are based on the following criteria:

  1. The team leader has attended Team Leader Training in our Conference or another within the last two years.
  2. The mission project involves a Global Ministries approved site.
  3. The application is submitted at least two months before the team departs.

Priority will be given to teams which are led by first-time team leaders; which are traveling to a location where Louisiana teams have not previously served; or which are using the funds to purchase materials that can be reused by future teams.

For a grant application or more information about the variety of support that LAVIM can provide, please contact Brenda Coppit at lavim@la-umc.org .
