Financial hardships in our congregation arise for a variety of reasons: medical bills, job loss, unexpected major expenses, counseling/therapy. CMCers generously support the Compassion Fund for mutual aid among members, so that we can ease these hardships among our households. If you or a CMCer you know has a financial need, Grants Committee will review your need through a brief application available on our website. CMC households are eligible for up to $600 twice annually in compassion funds as administered through the Grants Committee, which maintains confidentiality. In situations of higher need the process includes a recommendation from Grants Committee to Council. Please contact Grants Committee Chair, currently Shannon Sneary, with any procedural questions.
