July 6, 2016 No Comment

CLWR-logoALBERTA – In response to the Fort McMurray Wildfire, Canadian Lutheran World Relief (LCC) is inviting Lutheran Church–Canada (LCC) groups and congregations in Alberta to apply for funding for projects that will benefit the congregations and people of Fort McMurray.

Funds will come from the CLWR Emergency Fund. CLWR and LCC  issued a joint appeal for prayers and financial support earlier this year when the Fort McMurray Wildfire first took place.

Lutheran Church–Canada congregations in Alberta wishing to submit a proposal are invited to contact the Alberta-British Columbia District at info@lccabc.ca for proposal and reporting forms.

Please note the following guidelines:

  • Funding Eligibility: To be eligible for funding, the implementing agency should be a registered Canadian charity and working in the vicinity of the emergency.
     
  • Project Proposal: Please ensure that your proposal is submitted using the proposal form and includes the following information: project name; start and end date; project description; project objective and expected results; number of individuals and families that will benefit from the project; impact on the community; and how progress/success will be measured.
     
    A. Budget: Provide an itemized list of budgeted expenses for the proposed project. Approved funds will be disbursed directly to the implementing Church groups or congregations directly by CLWR. Implementing groups will be responsible for all reporting.

    B. Reporting: To ensure accountability to donors, CLWR needs to receive reporting on all projects funded. This report must be submitted to CLWR within two months of completing the project. The report, including photos, should be submitted using the report template and include information on the project activities, results achieved and the number of individuals/families benefiting from the project. 

  • Financial Reporting: The financial section of the report should list all the actual expenses pertaining to the project. Please submit copies of all receipts.
