Special Appeal, 2012
Request for Proposals
We are currently accepting applications for funds for our 2012 Special Appeal. Funding is available for social agencies, peace and justice organizations and other non-profit groups. The one time grant is to be used to start a new program, rather than for maintenance of existing programs.
The Special Appeal is an annual collection held during the Advent season and traditionally given to ministries outside the parish. A committee of St. Raphael parishioners will determine the recipient of the 2012 Special Appeal.
The recipient organization must have a spokesperson who can make a personal appeal at all liturgies on Special Appeal Weekend, November 24-25, 2012.
To request an application packet, contact Margaret Huck at 630-355-4545, ext. 123 or
Applications must be postmarked by Wednesday, September 5, 2012.
