Our Granting Process

It’s our honour and joy to steward our resources for the glory of God and the health of his creation. Our challenge is to discern where God is calling us to invest spiritually, relationally and financially. When we grant to an organization, we are entering a unique relationship that requires careful attention and regular contact.
