Grants 2017


Funding to missionaries and projects is normally provided through separate funding rounds that are advertised on this website. Usually there will be two of these each year. If you would like to receive notification of these funding rounds by email, as well as other updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.

The 2017 TNET funding round is now open, the deadline date for receipt of applications is 5 p.m. on Monday, 20th November 2017. We are currently inviting grant applications from missionaries who have worthwhile projects that will serve the New Evangelisation in Ireland. We are also concurrently appealing to donors to assist us in meeting these important needs.

Grant applicants will be required to fill out a set of application forms to describe themselves and their Cause. (DOWNLOAD GRANT APPLICATION FORMS HERE) The forms are in Word format and should be filled in electronically if possible. Applications should be as clear and comprehensive as possible in order to facilitate a methodical and measured assessment of the applications by the Grants Committee. Full instructions to applicants are provided on the application forms.

To help you assess whether or not you have an appropriate cause to justify making a grant application, the following is a non-exhaustive list of possible causes:

  • Evangelisation Groups
  • Evangelisation Projects or Initiatives
  • Catechetics
  • Scholarships relating to Evangelisation
  • Missionary’s living expenses
  • Pilgrimages to Church-recognised pilgrimage sites
  • Building related projects that have a clear purpose in the New Evangelisation 

Preference is given to specific Causes where it is demonstrated by the Applicant that funding from The New Evangelisation Trust will make the difference between the Cause proceeding or not. It is also preferable that the Applicant can demonstrate that their Cause has other sources of funding to supplement any funding that The New Evangelisation Trust may grant.

Please note that The New Evangelisation Trust cannot be responsible for any costs that an applicant incurs in relation to the preparation of any grant application.
