The Dandridge Trust is the main outreach arm of the diocese. The Fund supports seniors and the needy, facilitates accessibility and funds general outreach programs in the diocese and beyond. The Dandridge Trust accepts grant requests each fall for funding in the following year. It is the custom of the Dandridge Trust Advisory Board to set aside some funds to be available during the year. Those Opportunity Grant requests forms may be submitted at any time and will go before the Dandridge Trust Board outside of the regular funding cycle.
Since its founding in 1986 the Dandridge Trust has made grants totaling in excess of $2,800,000. The Dandridge Trust has a long and interesting history in the diocese and continues its good work, balancing annual funding with preservation of an asset which will continue into the future.
