Grant Funding

The Kingdom Missions Fund provides grants to innovative Christian missions projects that are Smart, Sustainable, and Scalable.

Grants will be awarded to missions where the impact would be great and primarily for the total cost of the project being considered. If the grant is only for a part of the total project, the grant will only be released when the applicant can prove that the additional cost of the project has been raised. Any grant awarded should be a significant part of the whole project cost.

Our grants have historically ranged from $500 to $5,000. We like to award between 8 – 12 grants each year and the average grant is roughly $3,000.

The fund focuses on three priorities:

1. Christian Missions, defined as the crossing of cultural and geographic boundaries in order to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples, either internationally or within the U.S.
2. Christian Education
3. Short-Term Mission Projects

2. Christian Education

3. Short-Term Mission Projects

We find missions projects that are innovative. By funding these ideas, we not only benefit the mission we support, we share these ideas so other missions can use them.

We look for projects that exhibit these characteristics:

1. Smart - We fund missions projects that are use creative methods or technologies to reach people and solve problems.

2. Sustainable - We fund projects that can become self-sustaining, generating cash flow or resources that can fund the mission.

3. Scalable - We fund projects that multiply to become templates other missions can use.

The Kingdom Missions Fund (KMF) began with one man’s faithfulness to put away $50 a month to create a fund investing in missions.

Seventeen years later, the fund has a value of over $500,000, after giving away over $333,000 to 177 smart, sustainable and scalable missions projects across the world. All of this has been done with small gifts from individuals and corporations. Many people give monthly.

Today the fund is on its way to $1 million. But we’re not stopping here. We are currently taking the most successful ideas we have funded and packaging them up to make it easy for other missions to replicate the success. We also have a vision to create 100 Kingdom Missions Funds in cities around the world, creating a combined $100 million fund to impact the world for Christ.
