The Costner-Fulton Fund for Missions is a grant program of the Creative Ministries Team. Tom and LaVerne Fulton shared a passion for social work in their professional lives. Their activism was a calling, rooted in faith and given further expression through the outreach ministries of the United Methodist Church. It is not surprising that this dedicated couple created an estate plan that would continue to reach out to a world in need.
The Creative Ministries Team will be awarding 2013 grants for launching new mission projects. E-mail your one-page only grant proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2012. The one-page proposal needs to include a mechanism for evaluating the success of the mission after six months and 12 months. In addition to the one-page only proposal, send a budget showing anticipated income and expenses and showing where additional funds will be received. Several grants from $1,000 to $5,000 will be awarded. Building projects do not qualify. To see a brochure go to www.moumethodist.org/ costnerfulton.
