To empower start up, nonprofit organizations financially, spiritually, and with sound business
knowledge to participate successfully as a responsible 501(c)3 organization that ultimately contributes to the Kingdom work of God.
Grants are issued each year to charities who are best positioned to benefit from our GPS Program. This program is a self-guided program
with a Driving Coach, who helps the client stay the course and finish well. Our goal is to help these ministries to succeed long-term by helping them begin with good navigational skills (the business
skills) and thereby fulfill their calling in God's kingdom work.
Grant applications are accepted from March through July and are awarded each October. For an application, please send us your contact
information in the Contact Tab. A brochure of this program will be sent with each application request.
- Do I need my 501c3? No, we accept ministries who are in the beginning planning stages and those who have applied for their non-profit
status and are still in the infancy stage of their ministry.
- How much are the Grants and what can they be used for? Grants are $5000 or less and are intended for start-up funding, other than
payroll. For instance, you may want to start a tutoring program and need to rewire a building or you may want to start a feeding ministry but need an OSHA approved hood vent for the kitchen. You may
need software, or you may need rent. The dollar amount is based upon your need and your application.
- How are grants administered? Grants are issued after the completion of the GPS program. The recipients will then be required to follow
grant reporting guidelines spelled out in the program.
- How is the GPS Program administered? Clients will use a self-guided website portal to complete each of the six modules, answer
worksheets, and then meet monthly with their Driving Coach. The goal is not simply completion but transformation. Each ministry should complete the program better positioned to finish the race set
before them, operate their ministries successfully for the long-term, and avoid the potholes or cliffs that endanger so many ministries who never complete the race. We also want our ministries to be
better positioned to get further grants or loans because of their success with us.
