Systemic Change is a core value of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Systemic Change is not a substitute for meeting the “demands of charity” that Vincentians undertake, but rather a complement to that work.
The National Council of the United States Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) has made available $200,000 to make one-year grants of up to $5,000 to support Systemic Change projects at Vincentian Councils or Conferences. The formal Request for Proposal and Application can be downloaded below. Applications are due Friday, July 17, 2020.
On Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 4:00 ET the National Council will host a webinar to discuss the RFP and field questions. To join the webinar, simply visit this link, enter your name, and press 'Enter Room.'
