The National Benevolent Association (NBA) Mission & Ministry Grant program provides funding for Disciples projects serving older adults and educating youth and young adults.
The Grants are ‘purpose-restricted funds’ for two types of programs: “educational Purposes for At-Risk Children and Youth” between the ages of 10-25 years, and “Older Adult Ministries” serving those who are 50 years or older.
Due to the purpose-restriction of these funds, grant applications must clearly demonstrate their funding needs as being related to older adults or at-risk youth to be approved. Mission & Ministry Grants are available for congregations, programs, and ministries affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada.
Application forms and requirements for the Mission & Ministry Grants are available here. Deadline for application is Sept. 26, 2023.
