Grants Event Preparation


At the Grants Event, grant recipients will explore the implications of vital worship, learn about grant administration, and discover ways to empower and engage people in their project. Grantees will network and learn from the experiences of current and previous grant recipients. All grant project directors of projects finishing their year will join new grantees to communicate the results of their work and discuss ideas for disseminating insights from their projects to larger audiences.

Contact Information for Travel

NOTE for JUNE 2021: The Grants Event will be held virtually due to the ongoing global pandemic; grant recipients will not need to travel to Grand Rapids.

Be prepared to give contact information on the project director and the team member who will travel to Grand Rapids with the project director.

CICW will cover all travel, lodging, and food expenses for the three-day event.

Create Poster

Due May 22 for those completing their grant project

Only those returning for their second Grants Event are required to create a poster. 

Below are poster templates to choose from. Download and add your own photos and text. We encourage you to add photos that capture or “tell the story” of your grant year particularly well. When you are finished upload your PowerPoint in the Grant Management System.

We will print the poster and have them waiting for you prior to the Poster Session at the Grants Event. After the event you will be able to bring them home to share with your community.
