The Ward J Herbert Fund was set up to assist our congregations with funding - up to 50% of a project’s cost - for various church maintenance repair issues for Churches, Parish Halls and Rectories. The Board meets for three cycles a year and reviews applications, awarding approximately $200,000.00 per year. Liaisons from the Board will make visits to the Church sites to review the project in question and also provide guidance on various maintenance techniques and the best practices available for church upkeep. The deadline for the second cycle for September funding is May 16, and the third cycle deadline for December funding is October 1. Find out more.
