Foundation Seeks Great Ideas for 2017

Each year, the Eno River Fellowship Foundation (ERFF) awards grants for projects that make a significant difference in supporting our ERUUF mission and priorities. We fund creative, seminal initiatives and enrichment of our facilities to fulfill our promises. In short, we ask ourselves, “What are we called to do and what do we need in place to get us there?” Answers to these questions and proposals that are submitted require this kind of deep thinking and have a direct link to ERUUF’s Strategic Plan and the Board’s End Statements.

Fellowship members, committees, groups and staff are encouraged to submit proposals. Instructions about submitting proposals using the on-line proposal form are available here. Proposals must be submitted as an attachment online by midnight March 13th, to . 

Foundation grants are made possible from the earnings that are achieved from our endowment. The endowment is the result of valued gifts and bequests made by ERUUF members and friends. It is the policy of the Foundation to disburse a conservative estimate of endowment earnings. This year, the total of grant funds available for proposal awards will be between $20,000 and $25,000.

Past grants have supported a wide range of projects, including our new sound system, a share in our new street sign, a Multicultural workshop, and audio/video technical improvements in our classrooms and offices. The Foundation does not fund regular operating expenses in ERUUF's budget.

Foundation Board members are Rose Auman, Stephen Edgerton, Bob Hollister, Leah Ogden, Larry Reed (chair), Doug Rhodes, Joy Rico, and Lillie Searles. Dave Mills is liaison from the Board of Trustees. The Rev. Deborah Cayer and Daniel Trollinger are ex-officio members. Please contact any Board member if you have questions about the proposal submission process or a proposal idea.

Please consider what can we do together to help ERUUF's mission thrive.
