Grants

Foundations Church is committed to being a generous church. Ten percent of our weekly offering is given away through the Grant Ministry and Financial Care Ministry. That’s right, we give it away! The Grant Ministry awards grants to ministries, and organizations for help with a project, outreach, or opportunity. Our goal is to strengthen groups who are making a difference locally, nationally, or globally.

GRANT REQUEST PROCESS

If your organization is interested in applying for a grant please read the Selection Criteria below. If you meet the criteria, complete and submit the Grant Request Form.  A member of the Grant Team may contact you to learn more about your request.  Requests are reviewed on a quarterly basis by the team – Jan 15 / April 15 / July 15 / Oct 15.

One-Time Grant Request:
Organizations and ministries are invited to submit a Grant Request one time within a 12-month period. This is a great way for organizations to receive assistance and for Foundations Church to learn about new organizations.

Strategic Alliance:
We recognize there are many great organizations doing many great things locally, nationally and globally, but we are unable to work with every one of them. Alliance by definition is an association to further the common interests of the members; relationship in qualities. These partnerships mutually benefit Foundations Church and the organization and may lead to multi-year partnerships. Foundations Church prayerfully explores organizations and develops relationships before committing to a Strategic Alliance.
