Free Will Baptist Foundation Grants Program

The Free Will Baptist Foundation Grants Program started in 2015 with $75,000 in pilot grants given to national departments and commissions. The program expanded in 2017 when Free Will Baptist ministries received $500,000. Each year, any ministry connected to the National Association of Free Will Baptists (NAFWB) is eligible to apply.

Until 2016, Free Will Baptist Foundation was largely a channel for individuals to direct endowments and planned gifts to help fund ministries perpetually. The recent addition of an estate-plan ministry, which has helped over 1,700 families with end-of-life planning, has resulted in over $14 million for ministries through bequests.

The grant program, however, allows the Foundation to fund the needs of ministries directly. Grant applications are due on March 15, and grants will be awarded during the spring Foundation board meeting in April. Learn more by contacting the Foundation office at 877-336-7575 or by emailing foundation@nafwb.org.
