Welcome to the Genesis Foundations
Our Mission is
To help Christian Organisations throughout the world with strategic planning and seed capital in order to multiply their work and implement projects that become self funding, so that they have the greatest impact for Christ’s Kingdom.
Grant seekers please note:
Church plant and or church growth requests will only be considered at the December quarter board meeting.
Other organisations may seek a grant once a year, depending on their financial year - if their financial accounts are for the year ended between 1 July and 31 December, they may seek a grant in our December quarter round. If their accounts are for the year ended between 1 January and 30 June, they may seek a grant in our June quarter round.
