Grants for Women Ministers

by Shannon Webster; Updated September 26, 2017
Grants help female ministers start their ministries.

Female ministers need money to start their congregations. Not every denomination supports women in the ministry, denying them funds. In other sects, grants are available through religious organizations and private donors to help women start their ministries. Many of these donations come without any particular denominational requirements, allowing female ministers to obtain the funds they need to spread their words of faith.

Inspire Women Grants

Inspire Women is a religious organization that provides grants for education and ministry. Inspire Women offers scholarships for theology degrees and financial donations to start ministries. Applications are available online or by phone. Inspire Women sends the application within 24 hours after you ask for more information.

Australian Capital Territory Grants

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) offers educational and financial grants to women in Australia. The grants vary in size. Educational grants are available to people living in Australia, while financial grants are for ministries established in the territory. Women can take advantage of these grants to learn and grow, even as U.S. citizens. Applications can be obtained from ACT via email from its website.
