Participants

Since its launch in 2016, the National Fund has supported dozens of congregations and organizations from all corners of the country and a wide array of faith traditions. Most importantly, the National Fund is proud to support and strengthen the community programming housed in these religious facilities. These programs and partnerships range from addressing food insecurity and access to healthcare services, to fostering community engagement through  the performing arts, to nurturing belonging through countless social gatherings and support groups. The sacred places highlighted below are cultivating the common good of their communities.

Congregations and organizations participating in the National Fund receive a comprehensive package of services on the way to accessing capital grant funds for “bricks and mortar” building projects. Among the many steps needed to achieve successful projects, progress through this program can be tracked along five milestones noted with each profile. On average, participants take 18-24 months to complete the National Fund program.
