Giving of Life offers more than $150,000 in ministry grants by June
Giving of Life, the Web-based grant initiative, is giving away more than $150,000 between now and June to fund ministries that breathe new life into people and communities around the world.
Founded by Dan Maclellan and Russell Courtney of The SoulCare Project, and Kerry Bural, principal and founder of The Resonate Group, Giving of Life is a grant initiative with a twist. Any 501c3 ministry with an annual budget of $4 million or less may apply through a simple online process at GivingOfLife.com.
In 2011, its inaugural year, Giving of Life channeled $114,000 to 20 life-giving ministries. More than 450 ministries applied for grants, and 180,000 votes were cast.
In 2012, Giving of Life debuts several new features including:
- A brand new website.
- Three separate seasons for ministries to apply and voters to help choose the recipients.
- In the first season, more than $150,000 will be given away between now and June 4.
- Applicants will be divided into categories (i.e. Adoption, Food and Water, Human Trafficking, etc.), and a recipient from each category will be awarded a minimum grant of $10,000.
