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, regardless of whether or not they have received a Daily Bread Matching Grant in the past.
Approved participants are able to invite their congregation, networks, and friends to donate. To kickstart campaigns, the funds raised are matched by ELCA World Hunger with a grant of $500.
These grants provide daily bread for neighbors experiencing hunger while also serving as a tool for ministry fundraising and capacity building. ELCA World Hunger Daily Bread Matching Grants will be made available to congregation on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration and applications for the 2023 Daily Bread Matching Grant opened April 25, 2022. Visit ELCA.org/dailybread to learn more and stay up to date!
