Technology Grants Application (here)

The Northwest Wisconsin Association of the Wisconsin Conference UCC is offering grants up to $1000 for technical support to local congregations. Awards will be granted as applications are received and as funds remain available.

Grants are available for a broad definition of technology: hardware (computers, cameras, microphones, projectors, screens, recording equipment, etc.), software, and/or training (e.g., at your local technical college, seminars). We say broadly because each church knows its needs better than we do. For some churches this might be a first step into “technology” while others might be upgrading.

Association Creation Care Grant Application (here)
Conference Creation Care Application (here)

The Northwest Association of the Wisconsin Conference, UCC, in an effort to lift up the high calling of being faithful stewards of God’s creation, is making grants available to NWA Congregations that are taking steps to positively change their relationship with the environment. These changes can be small or large, they could focus on energy use levels, renewable sources of energy, conservation efforts, recycling efforts, resources management, etc. The NWA is trying to encourage churches to act out their calling to be faithful stewards of what God shares with us.

The Northwest Association ranges from La Crosse in the south to Madeline Island in the north, from the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers in the west to Land o’ Lakes and Phelps in the east.  Majestic bluffs, rolling farmland, deep woods, lakes and rivers, farms and cities define the landscape of this beautiful part of “God’s Country.”
