Council for Life Criteria for Beneficiary Selection:
To have a diverse slate of grants that reflects the complex issues surrounding unplanned pregnancy.
To keep the focus on local community initiatives.
Note: Applicants must apply for funds that will be used to provide services in Collin, Dallas, Ellis, Rockwall and/or Tarrant counties.
Before submitting an application, agencies must have been in existence for at least three years, based on IRS determination date, or have served the DFW Metroplex area at least three years.
To consider legitimate operating needs as well as stand-alone projects.
To select beneficiaries that are in line with our mission to empower women, men and youth to make life-affirming choices and are motivated by Christ-like love and compassion.
Not to fund the same project or need more than two consecutive years.
To prevent agencies from becoming financially dependent on Council for Life. We encourage agencies to develop new community relationships made possible during the grant year; however, we ask that you do not directly solicit new donors (via an underwriting letter) from our membership while in the same year you are selected to receive a grant.
