learn about grants next week

October 18, 2007

This is a free informational meeting to learn more about how to apply for a matching grant if your church (or you know of a church that) is doing a project in outreach, mentoring, or economic development.

MUSTARD SEED FDN @ HARAMBEE (directions)
THURSDAY, OCT. 25 @ 2:00PM

The Mustard Seed Foundation will hold a meeting at Harambee Ministries on how to successfully apply for funds from their foundation. MSF gives only to churches and only gives matching grants. Brian Bakke of MSF will be on hand, and highly suggests that at least two people from interested churches attend. Please RSVP by emailing rsvp@harambee.org or calling 626-798-7431.

Message from Brian Bakke:

We have seen God bless the funding of the MSF over the past two years, and this year the MSF has paid 760 projects around the world. We are on a pace to pay out about 1,000 projects this year, including over $5 million in matching grants to local churches, and over $3 million in scholarships. That blessing has left us with a big problem. We have lots of money to give away. This has led to another problem. Few LA churches have asked the MSF for it!

This year the MSF has awarded grants to LA churches that have ranged between $4,000 and $42,000 and everything in between. Each of these churches that received a grant from the MSF wrote an application telling us what they wanted to do and how they wanted MSF to match the cash giving of their church to start or expand a specific project. … you can access MSF funding for a new or expanded outreach, mentoring, or economic development project.

Out of curiosity, are there any grant oppurtunities for nonprofit parachurch organizations such as Intervarsity?
