2017 Marble Easter Offering

It is the tradition of the congregation of Marble Collegiate Church to make an annual Easter Offering, all proceeds of which are given as grants to support the important work of nonprofit organizations making a difference in our city and our world.

In 2017, Easter will fall on April 16, 2017, and it is our hope to disburse the proceeds by June 30, 2017. While no funding commitments can be made, we hope to engage in a thorough review process which may include a pre-arranged site visit before awarding any grants.

All applicants for a Marble Easter Offering grant must be a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status.

Applications are no longer being accepted for 2017.

If you have any questions about the Marble Easter Offering or our 2017 grants, please contact Susanah Wade, (212) 686-2770 or EasterOffering@MarbleChurch.org.

What Are Some of Our Beneficiary Organizations Saying about the Marble Easter Offering?

Mary Grace Eapen, Vice President, External Affairs
READ Alliance

“Read Alliance has been so fortunate to be a recipient of generous support from Marble Collegiate Church’s congregation through its Easter Offering. Marble Collegiate Church’s donations to our program has allowed many at-risk rising first and second grade children in New York City to receive the critical reading intervention they needed during the summer months to enter school in September reading on grade level.”

Richard Spaholz, Regional Director
Opportunity International

“Thank you, Marble Collegiate Church, for your continued partnership with Opportunity International. You have given generously toward our Global Microfinance Initiatives and our Banking on Africa Campaign. As a result, your gifts have helped us to provide 1,276 loans to 250 clients, impacting 1,070 lives. Your support empowers marginalized people around the world to find hope and dignity through hard work, business training, community involvement and access to capital. Through your support, you are helping us to follow Jesus Christ’s command to love and serve the poor...”

Fatima Goldman, Executive Director
Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies

“Your grant enabled us to provide $1000 for emergency relief to a soup kitchen at Grace Church West Farms in the Bronx. This soup kitchen serves more than 150 seniors and pre-school children daily, and they were facing closure because their government funding was four months late. The emergency funding helped them to keep their doors open, and to continue to serve their community residents in need. Additionally, $1000 was supplied to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church soup kitchen in Port Chester, New York. St. Peter’s serves mostly the homeless and new immigrants from Central and South America. Many of the new immigrants have yet to establish adequate support systems, and they rely on St. Peter’s soup kitchen for daily survival.”

The Rev. Richard Witt, Executive Director
Rural Migrant Ministry

"This past year, thanks to your support, we were able to help a group of young people in Sullivan County (one of New York’s poorest) create their own economic cooperative... your partnership has made a huge difference in many lives."
