In 2019 your Moravian Ministries Foundation began our grant-making service. The Grant Advisory Team is a critical component of the granting process as it objectively evaluates all grant applications and collaboratively makes well-informed funding recommendations to the MMFA Board.
Each Grant Advisory Team member serves a four-year term; once a year the team receives applications from MMFA staff, utilizes a rubric for grant review, and then meets via Zoom to make grant award recommendations.
We are currently looking for two volunteers willing to commit the time and dedication needed to serve on the Grant Advisory Team (term to begin in 2023). If you or someone you know is passionate about the Moravian Church and would like to be directly involved with the impact of Moravian generosity, let us know!
Grant Advisory Team members should be:
- able to articulate their opinions
- open to others’ ideas
- comfortable with group decision-making
- active in or serving a Moravian ministry in the United States
MMFA strives to appoint a team that is diverse in terms of geographic representation, gender, ethnicity, age, and culture. Because of the need to form a well-balanced group, we may not be able to consider all qualified people who are interested in serving. However, it is very helpful to have a pool of candidates for future years.
If you would like to serve or nominate someone for service on MMFA’s Grant Advisory Team, please email or call Laura Watson, Director of Stewardship Services. Laura can be reached at (336) 725-2589 or email@example.com.
The current team members are: Bill Matz, Sue Dreydoppel, Rev. Jenny Moran, Zach Routh, Emily Rector, John Mickey, and Chris Spaugh.
