Kingdom Impact Fund

Where Your Treasure Is...


In 2012, the Foundation established the Kingdom Impact Fund to support efforts that lead individuals, especially those in need, "the least of these", to an active realization of the Gospel truth that eternal hope comes from a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. Each year, the Fund offers grants to Gospel-based, non-church ministries that meet physical or spiritual needs in the community. The Kingdom Impact Fund is supported by generous donors who have a heart for our community. We recognize that it is important to meet the physical needs of those who are suffering in our community, and it is essential to also meet the spiritual needs of those who are suffering, by communicating the hope of the Gospel, the eternal hope of salvation through Jesus Christ.


To this end, the Fund will consider grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to eligible 501(c)(3) organizations with budgets of $1,000,000 or less that:

  1. Serve the “least of these” (Matt 25:40).  For the purposes of the Kingdom Impact Fund, “least of these” means:
    1. Those with unmet physical needs, including the sick, poor, disabled, elderly and unborn, and/or
    2. Children or youth with unmet spiritual needs – that is, they have not heard or experienced the Gospel;
  2. Have an express Gospel-based mission or identify a specific project or program that advances the Gospel for which the grant from the Fund will be specifically used (see Section IV below); and
  3. Have been referred by someone connected to the Foundation or by a church or ministry supported by the Foundation.

Preference will be given to organizations that are not churches but have an express Gospel-based mission, preferably set forth in a written mission statement. However, churches and non-Gospel-based organizations are also eligible.
