Grants Delivered in 2019

Free Will Baptist Foundation has awarded $1.5 million in grants over the last three years (2017-2019). The grants were funded by a strategic harvest of realized capital gains to supply the $500,000 needed for each year. The last quarter of 2018 was difficult as we experienced a market correction and were uncertain if 2019 grants would be issued. However, following a recovery in January of 2019, we were able to offer grants again. While it is the intent of the Foundation to make $500,000 in grants every year, market conditions may affect our ability to do so.

  • IM Bulgaria Missions Team $60,000
