Excitement is building for the 2015 ELCA Youth Gathering, and we know that congregations are already raising the funds to help their youth attend. We also know the financial challenges that arise in many congregations, and that additional help may be required.
We would love nothing more than to have all of our young people experience the Gathering, and we have dedicated funding to help offset the cost of attending by covering the registration fee, a $325 value per person.
The financial assistance application process closed on July 15, 2014. We cannot guarantee that all applicants will receive an award; you will be notified by email if your young person is selected. All financial assistance will be uploaded into your congregational account in the ELCA Youth Gathering registration database, so you will see it when you log in to register on Oct. 15, 2014.
