COMPASSION CAPITAL GRANT
At the end of April last year the Request for Proposals
(RFP) for the Compassion Capital Grant was released.
This means that at anytime
now the RFP could be
released. Ministries do NOT want to miss out on this
The primary purpose of the CCF is to help faith-based
and community organizations increase their
effectiveness, enhance their ability to provide social
services to serve those most in need, expand their
organizations, diversify their funding sources, and
create collaborations to better serve those in need.
The program funds faith-based and community organizations
directly with one time $50,000 awards for one year to build
their capacity to deliver services to at-risk youth, the
homeless, those living in rural communities, or to provide
marriage education. All you have to do is be serving ONE of
these four areas. To be eligible an organization must serve
individuals in a "distressed community." A distressed
community is defined as a neighborhood or geographic
community with an unemployment rate and/or poverty rate
equal to or greater that the state or national rate.
Christiangrants.com specializes in writing this
specific grant and will be offering its services for a
few select ministries. Tim Boling, President of
Christiangrants.com, wrote this grant successfully in
2005 for a ministry in the Buffalo, NY area and has also
served as a Federal Reviewer of this specific
grant. Nearly 300 organizations and ministries in 2005
were awarded grants of $50,000 from this
fund. If interested in knowing more about our services

FAITH BASED CONFERENCE
Last month I had the privilege of attending the "White
House Office of Faith Based Initiatives National
Conference". The conference featured helpful seminars
as well as a keynote speech by President Bush. The
President shared the impact that Faith Based
Organizations are having in America and released a
report showing the great improvement in the access to
federal dollars faith based organizations are
experiencing. This report is available for free on our
website at Christiangrants.com
