ELCA World Hunger's Daily Bread Matching Grants support congregations and their partners as they work toward a just world where all are fed. Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregations with feeding ministries are eligible to participate.
The most recent cycle of this grant occurred as part of the ELCA’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These grants were available to eligible ministries on a first-come, first-served basis. Between April 3 and April 19, approved congregations invited their members, networks and friends to donate. To help drive their campaigns, the funds they raised were matched by ELCA World Hunger with a grant of $500.
In response to high demand, the total number of grants awarded was expanded to 200. The current round of grants has reached capacity, but we hope to offer more Daily Bread Matching Grants in the future. Follow ELCA World Hunger on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for the latest updates.
