In response to the unprecedented realities of the COVID-19 crisis, Generous Space Ministries is concerned with the very real material needs facing many people in our community. To that end, we have created the GS COVID-19 Mutual Support Fund to provide essential financial assistance to those who see Generous Space as family.
How Does It Work?
Through the online form (click here), people in our community can confidentially apply for funding, providing GS with details about the need and the specific amount required. A designated disbursement team, made up of the Executive Director, Director of Operations, and a Director of Community, will consider applications based upon the nature of the need and availability of funds.
What Does It Cover?
The fund is designed to help cover specific one-time emergency expenses such as food, current rent, transportation, medical support, etc. The designated staff team will discern how to prioritize the disbursement of funds. The fund is not designed to cover recreational or non-essential expenses. Support will cover the specific financial amount with a $250 cap.
Where Does The Money Come From?
This is a way that all of us can participate in supporting one another in times of need. Donations to Generous Space Ministries can be designated toward the Mutual Support Fund. While donations cannot be designated to specific people, the designated staff team will distribute the funds carefully and fairly. The more people give to the fund, the more people we can help.
Generous Space Ministries is more than an organization. We are a community of deep relationships and an abiding sense of family. As our community faces very real financial and material needs, it is not enough for us to say, “Be warm and well fed!”. The GS COVID-19 Mutual Support Fund provides us the opportunity to stand with each other in very practical and essential ways.
