About this organization






Encourage God-glorifying stewardship, based on Biblical principles, of material resources among Christians who actively support Barnabas Foundation member church and ministry organizations.


Barnabas Foundation serves as a Community Foundation for its 200 Christian church and ministry member organizations and provides financial support to Christian Reformed churches, their agencies and many other ministries that further the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. Grants of over 60 million dollars were either distributed or accrued for future distribution to the following types of charitable organizations: 45% supported Christian or secular Educational institutions, 32% supported Christian Missions, Evangelism and Churches, 7% supported Human Service and Relief organizations, 3% supported organizations providing Housing or Shelter, 3% supported Healthcare organizations, 2% supported Environmental organizations and 8% supported other religious or secular charities. Of the 60 million dollars distributed or designated for distribution, 45 million came from donor-advised fund accounts or donor restricted fund accounts, 14 million from donor bequests at death and one-half million from matured life income agreements. Funds received by the Foundation are administered and invested until grants are approved to member church and ministry organizations, as well as to non-member churches and other 501(c)(3) public charities after careful review of their tax exempt status, mission, purpose and practices.
