Hands of Health Grants are one-time, matching grants of $500 - $1000 offered to faith-based, non-profit, non-denominational organizations who are either starting new Health Ministries, or are needing funds to sustain a project within already-established Health Ministries.  Only four grants are awarded annually.  The congregation or organization requesting funding must agree to match a sum equal to the amount of the grant.

What we do not fund:

  • Salaries
  • Capital equipment such as Automatic External Defibrillators, Screening equipment, etc.

Eligibility Requirements:

At this time grants are awarded to United States based congregations or organizations only.

Congregations or organizations may only apply for one grant during a yearly  grant cycle.

Congregations or organizations must show proof of grant matching.

Those who apply must use the grant for seeding new Health Ministries, or for funding a project that helps to develop  an existing Health Ministry program.  Those seeking funding of other, non-health-related ministries,  will be considered non-eligible.

Congregations and organizations must show proof of IRS 501(c)3 status.

Congregations/organizations must submit a Final Evaluation Report within two years of the grant release.

Congregations and/or organizations wishing to be considered for a Hands of Health Grant must complete and submit the following items to williamswishes@gmail.com:

  • Cover sheet (attach as either a .doc or .pdf)
  • Summary of Request
  • Budget (a simple Revenue/Expense sheet that should include some proof of intention on behalf of the organization to match the grant amount - matching funds and grant funds should both be listed under Revenue)
  • A letter from pastor, council leader, president, or other administrative leader, showing proof of matching grant funding support
  • Confirmation of the congregational or organizational IRS 501(c)3 status.
