Join the Parliament in #ACommunityThrives Campaign

July 18, 2022

The Parliament of the World’s Religions is one of the non-profits participating in A Community Thrives, a program that supports community improvement ideas with grants up to $100K.

A Community Thrives is a grant-making and crowdfunding program from the USA TODAY NETWORK. The initiative is part of the Gannett Foundation and supports nonprofit organizations with projects focused on community building.

To qualify for a grant, the Parliament needs to meet a fundraising goal of $6,000 with support from the global interfaith movement.

Please support the Parliament in our bid to receive A Community Thrives grant. The grant and funds raised will support the organization’s mission to advance the interfaith movement at the 2023 Chicago Convening.

Here’s how you can help! From Monday, July 18th through Friday, August 12th:

  1. Donate on the Parliament’s MightyCause page.
  2. Share this email with your network and invite them to donate a minimum of $5 to the Parliament’s campaign.
  3. Share the Parliament’s social media updates on the campaign.
  4. Use the Parliament’s templates to share your own stories about how interfaith helps a community thrive with the hashtag #ACommunityThrives. Your stories will help our outreach efforts and support our grant eligibility.
