The Helping Hand Fund
The Fund has been established to provide members and friends of the CHUP Community with the opportunity to assist one another with urgent financial needs such as rent, utilities, medical expenses, or other disasters. One-time grants of between $250 – $750 may be made upon recommendation by the ministry team responsible. The Helping Hand Fund accepts donations in any amount.
If you would like to apply for a grant, please complete this form, indicating your connection with the ministries of the First UP Church of Crafton Heights (including the Open Door and the Crafton Heights Community Preschool). If you do not have an ongoing relationship with the congregation, the Preschool, or The Open Door, you may be eligible for a grant from the Lazarus Fund of Pittsburgh Presbytery.
If you would like to nominate someone for a grant, please complete the form below noting the extent of the need of which you’re aware.
