Thanks to a generous bequest from Leo DeVany, the Cathedral Commnity is privileged to maintain a fund to improve the lives of the poor among us.
The DeVany Fund provides financial assistance to agencies, church ministries and other organizations that provide direct assistance to the poor or that work to address issues that impact the poor. For example, funds may be used for winter clothing, tutoring services, skill building, after-school supports, emergency services or job training. DeVany Fund grants may not be used to pay staff salaries, administrative overhead, or to cover program deficits or the personal needs of individuals.
Grant awards range from $500 to $2,000; the number of awards depends on the growth of the fund.
Applications are due by May 15, and recipients will be announced by June 15 of each year.
Questions about the DeVany Fund or eligibility for grants may be directed to Carla Palumbo at:
