The foundation is a private charity organized and funded under the laws of the United States of America. The foundation is Christian, focusing its support on efforts by Christian churches to reach out to the poor in their communities.
The foundation was established to provide support to local churches in the developing world who are doing what the church is supposed to do: reaching out to the poor and the powerless in the name of Jesus Christ. We do not make grants to churches or other organizations within the United States, except to the extent that such organizations in turn provide those funds directly to a specific local church in the developing world. Our experience is that direct relationships with specific local churches have the greatest effect and produce the most effective programs with the greatest impact on the poor.
Our vision is to help local churches to "be Jesus" to the poor in their communities.
