The Tegeder Committee
The purpose of the Tegeder Committee is to carefully vet grant requests based on:
- Annual area of focus as guided by the parish
- Alignment of organization purpose
- Due diligence on each application
The Tegeder Committee will meet quarterly to approve and prioritize outreach grants based on funds available. After each granting session, the committee will publish the grant recipients along with the amount and purpose of the grant.
Note: Committee members recuse themselves from evaluating requests made by non-profits they are personally involved with.
Initial Fund Committee membership:
Jerry Grebin; Committee Co-Chair, Barry Weber; Committee Co-Chair, Ann McGuire, Warren Thiede, Dan Kinsella, Mia Ah Sani; St. Edward Coordinator for Social Justice & Charity
Frequently Asked Questions
When will the committee award the first round of grants?
The first round of grants will be awarded in the second quarter of 2022.
How is The Tegeder Fund different than the Dudley Fund?
The Dudley Fund is emergency relief for individuals. The Tegeder Fund is for non-profit organizations in our community.
Why doesn’t St. Edward fund this out of our operating budget?
Our current operating budget is not adequate to fund the Tegeder Fund. Although we ask for donations for various projects, we believe this fund serves a different purpose. In addition to their regular stewardship pledge, it is our hope that parishioners will appreciate the opportunity to use a vehicle like this to leverage their impact.
