The Social Justice Commission at St. Thomas More allocates tithing grants twice a year, in
February and August. The money for tithing comes from the church’s tithing grant budget,
proceeds from Fair Trade sales, and occasionally grants from Rice Bowl donations. When you
purchase Fair Trade products you are giving twice. You are supporting the dignity of workers
from around the world, and you contribute to organizations in our local community, our state,
and worldwide, who perform The Works of Mercy every day.
We are inviting you to submit Tithing Grant Applications for our August grant allocations. Paper applications will be
available at a table next to the FairTrade coffee shelf and applications may also be filled out
by clicking here. Applications will be accepted beginning on July 1 st and ending on July 31 st . If you have questions about Tithing Grants please email Linda Myers at [email protected] .
