The Cents-Ability program of Monmouth Presbytery was initiated in November 2006 as a strategy for raising awareness and funds in the fight against hunger. Funds raised through Cents-Ability are used to fund hunger ministries in a partnership model. The allocation of funds raised in Monmouth Presbytery is: 40% within the bounds of Monmouth Presbytery and 60% for hunger ministries in the U.S. and around the world (to be chosen from ECOs of the Presbyterian Hunger Program).
The Cents-Ability Grants Committee administers the grants process for the Presbytery of Monmouth. A grants committee member will attend and report to the meetings of Presbytery two times each year, following awarding of Cents-Ability grants. Each congregation that participates in Cents-Ability will have a representative on the grants committee.
