Grant Recipients

Giving grants to nonprofit agencies is a tangible way our organization can further its mission of helping the least of our brothers and sisters. As we go forward on this path, we are fine tuning our interpretation of the 25th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew to help define our grantmaking.

We support agencies that:

    Provide shelter to the homeless
    Eliminate food insecurity and hunger
    Ensure that everyone has access to clean water
    Support refugees
    Offer physical, mental health and addiction recovery programs
    Help the formerly incarcerated re-integrate into society

We have succeeded in funding many of these areas, but have been diligently seeking opportunities that help us extend our reach. We will continue our work guided by these areas of need.
