We are especially thankful for the Christian foundations that took the time to carefully review and select projects.

Here’s a snippet from the official news release:

The eleven Granting Partners of Stronger Together in 2013 are pleased to announce that 40 Canadian charitable organizations have been awarded grants totaling $1,154,800. Grants honour the work of Christian charities from British Columbia to New Brunswick and are made to assist these organizations increase the missional impact of their charitable work. The funded projects include a wide range of activities from ophthalmic services in Ethiopia, to employment training in Toronto, to youth shelter support in Abbotsford, to research on Canadians’ Biblical literacy. 

Special thanks are extended to the 190+ organizations who submitted applications for Stronger Together 2013 funding. We were encouraged to see diligence and strategic thinking demonstrated as projects were developed to measurably increase the impact of organizations’ work. While each application proposed a worthy project, limited resources prevented grants to a longer list of commendable organizations and made the grant-making decisions difficult. We trust that the impact of these diverse projects, implemented within a broad spectrum of Canadian and international charitable work, will strengthen and increase these organizations’ ability to fulfill their missions well into the future.
