Welcome to Grant Central Station

Your Resource for all Things Grant-Related

We envision thriving ministries that glorify God, and one of the ways MMFA helps to realize this vision is through our annual grants program. MMFA’s grant program is funded by both the generosity of individuals who are passionate about a particular area of need and a portion of MMFA’s net income each year.

Grant requests often exceed the funds that are available. In 2022, 57% of applications were fully funded with an average award of $1,925 (excludes Hunger and Thirst grants which averaged $13,836). Please carefully review the Grant Guidelines and Procedures for detailed information. For questions, please contact Ainsley Davis at (336) 725-2589 or adavis@mmfa.com.

The world is in need and God is calling you. Answer and apply!
