Charity Guild of Catholic Women awarded $547,599 in grants to 48 well-deserving agencies and schools on Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022, at the Charity Guild Shop. Those honored truly fulfill the Guild’s mission of “rendering assistance to children in need in the Greater Houston Area, regardless of race or creed.” The recipients serve children in the areas of health and social services; education and Catholic education; hunger, special needs and art and enrichment.
Charity Guild of Catholic Women accepts grant applications from agencies in the greater Houston area that serve children in need from the time of conception to the 18th birthday. Although the goals of these charities must be consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church, the Charity Guild provides grants without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, or creed.
Each applying charity must have an active Charity Guild member as a sponsor. This sponsor verifies that the organization serves children who are challenged and need additional support to thrive and that funding from Charity Guild will make a significant difference in a child’s life. The sponsor must also provide to the Children’s Charities Committee a signed Verification of Sponsor Form stating that she is aware your agency is listing her as sponsor.
Members: please find the Verification of Sponsor Form in our Member Portal.
The annual application period is from March 15 through June 15. The Children’s Charities Committee carefully reviews all applications and schedules site visits from mid-June through mid-September.
Please refer to the Grant Application tab for more information on guidelines and restrictions.
