Apply for the Kingdom Advancing Grant - 2023 Grant Cycle Now Open

January 9, 2023: The 2023 granting cycle has begun. The deadline to apply is March 31. The Kingdom Advancing Grant supports innovative church programs or initiatives that not only connect people with Jesus but also are sustainable over time and can be replicated by other churches.

The number of grants awarded each year will vary, based on the scope and financial need of the projects. During 2022, the inaugural year of the Kingdom Advancing Grant, the Brotherhood Mutual Foundation awarded $150,000 to four churches for their innovative programs.

Each Kingdom Advancing Grant recipient not only receives funding for their initiative or program, but also is paired with an experienced ministry leader who can provide guidance and assistance.

The grant is designed to support church programs or initiatives that demonstrate 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.
  • Can be sustained over time.
  • Can be replicated by other churches.

For an initiative or program to be considered eligible for a Kingdom Advancing Grant, it must be directly overseen by a Christian church that meets each of the following requirements:

  • A tax-exempt charitable organization as described in section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code
  • In good standing with the IRS; If the 501(c)(3) tax exemption was previously revoked by the IRS, it must have been reinstated for at least one full year prior to applying for the Kingdom Advancing Grant.
  • Based in the United States

The Kingdom Advancing Grant Council will make final decisions by July 2023. The Grant Council is made up of more than a dozen pastors, administrators and executive leaders from some of the most influential churches and ministries around the country. Many of these will be the same individuals providing mentorship to the grant recipients.
