Guidelines For Funding
East 91st Street Christian Church Foundation is a not-for-profit Private Foundation. It is a Public Benefit Corporation formed under Indiana law.
The Foundation does not provide funding for operating expenses of existing ministries. The Foundation concentrates on funding new or expanding ministries. There are two objectives for grants:
- Assisting the making of disciples. Matthew 28: 18-20
- Meeting the physical needs of hurting people. Matthew 25:35-40
All organizations, and their officers, receiving grants from the Foundation must adhere to Christian beliefs and principles. These beliefs affirm that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who died and was resurrected and who provides individuals with their only hope of eternal salvation.
Grants will only be given to churches and organizations recognized as tax exempt under Section 501 (c) (3) of the U. S. Internal Revenue Code. Grants cannot be given to individuals, or groups which are not tax exempt or for-profit.
