Join hundreds of previous recipients in their efforts to make a hunger-free Iowa!

Financial Well-Being Grants for Pastors Open until July 31, 2024

The Foundation is thrilled to offer financial relief to pastors again this year! Thanks to our partnership with Wespath and their Clergy Financial Well-Being Initiative, we are awarding a limited number of $500 grants to pastors in Iowa. To qualify, an applicant must be a minority or work in an under-served area. Learn more and apply on our website.

Support Your Church with Gifts of Stock

Giving stocks or securities directly to your church is a tax-savvy way to make a meaningful impact. The Foundation offers processing of stock gifts so you don't have to set up a transfer account with your brokerage. And we don't charge commission so your entire gift goes to your church! Get started today.

The Foundation wants to wish a big congrats and good luck to all the pastors starting new church appointments this month. Please reach out to us with all your stewardship questions as you get to know your new congregation - we are here to help!
