Established in 2010, the Faith Fund provides both event-specific support for activities that consider religious and spiritual themes and non-event based support for religious and spiritual organizations. Religious and non-religious Penn student organizations are eligible to apply for event funding.

The Fund is administered by the Office of the Chaplain and funding decisions are made by a representative student group convened by PRISM, Penn’s interfaith and student religious life leadership organization.

To apply:

  • The Faith Fund will be using the Common Funding Application for 2018-19 Grants. This application allows you to simply create an event, fill in the required information, and then it will recommend funding sources that make sense for your request.
  • Plan ahead! – Faith Fund meetings are held roughly twice each month (see dates listed below). For event funding you must present to the Faith Fund at least 5 days prior to your scheduled event.

Faith Fund Meetings for the Spring 2019 semester will take place on the following Mondays, starting at 11am, in SPARC – 240 Houston Hall
