Program standards

The Kingdom Advancing Grant, offered through the Brotherhood Mutual FoundationSM, supports church teams who, in their God-ordained calling, transform their community in creative and collaborative ways.

The grant is designed for a church program or initiative that demonstrates all of the following:

  • Directly overseen by the church.
  • Intended to help build the Kingdom by introducing people to Jesus or strengthening their relationship with Jesus.
  • Involves a unique idea that's innovative, creative, and new and that other churches are not already doing.
  • Sustainable and can be replicated by other Christian churches.

The Brotherhood Mutual Foundation awards individual grants in amounts of $15,000–$100,000 annually. The number of grants awarded each year will vary, based on the scope and financial need of the projects.
