Impactful giving supports local charities

You Made a Difference!Donations to the 2016-2017 Sunday Offering and Grants Committee Fund supported 61 projects and raised more than $50,000 for Greater Boston non-profits.

Your generosity this past year for our Sunday Offering helped fund 61 projects for non-profit charity organizations that serve the communities of the Greater Boston Area. These include afterschool and summer programs for refugee and under-served youth, goods and supplies for local homeless shelters and programs for low-income families.

Funds from the Sunday Offering are distributed on the advice of the Memorial Church Grants Committee, comprised of church parishioners, Harvard students, faculty, and staff. This past year, the church donated a total of $50,702 to local organizations.

Applications for next year’s awards are currently being accepted through Jan. 11. For more information about the Grants Committee, applying for a grant, and the full list of organizations that received awards last year, please visit
