Special Needs Committee

The Loretto Community supports innovative social change projects through the Special Needs Fund, which comes from a percentage of Loretto’s annual operating budget. Organizations are invited to submit grant applications for up to $7,500 for social change projects that exemplify the mission of the Loretto Community to “work for justice and act for peace.”

Funds are disbursed twice per year. Grants are due on February 15th and October 15th for review by the Special Needs Committee the following month.
