Evangelical Grants

Support of Christian organizations and individuals whose activities serve to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ nationally and internationally whose beliefs are in line with the Word of God.

Grant Making Priorities:

The Foundation is authorized to make grants to advance the work of Christian evangelism, encourage church growth, train pastors, evangelists and teachers in non-Christian areas and extend the availability of Scripture to more people.

Priority shall be given to funded projects which are characterized by several of the following:

  • Focused specifically on areas of the world unreached or hostile to the Gospel in an effort to advance and complete the Great Commission.
  • Train Christian teachers, pastors and evangelists and send them into areas where the shortage of workers is acute.

Organizations and individuals whose main priority and mission is to reach those who are considered “unreached” with the Gospel of Jesus Christ will receive first priority in the distribution of grants.

Below is a list of ministries and projects that meet the criteria of grant giving by the Alvah and Doris Veit Foundation. This list is not exclusive and the board of directors makes the final decision on all grant distributions as they deem appropriate.

  • International Missions
  • Building Projects
  • Purchase of Materials/ Vehicles
  • For the explicit purpose of advancing the Gospel
  • Repairs to Property
  • This may include but is not restricted to: buildings, vehicles, machinery, wells, etc.
  • Training
  • This may include but is not restricted to: seminars, language study, cultural living instruction, etc.
  • Healthcare/Medical
  • This may include but is not restricted to: short-term or long-term projects, medical camps, medical equipment, medicine, etc.
  • Scripture Translation
  • Micro loans
  • Loans may be given to entrepreneurs as start up cash or working capital.
  • Micro loans may be used for the purposes of: the purchase of equipment, inventory, machinery, fixtures, furniture, supplies, and even to purchase another business.
  • Loans should be used in a way to advance the Gospel in unreached areas or areas hostile to the Gospel.

The charitable interests of both founders are reflected in the Foundation’s overall mission. It is important to note that while the Foundation operates as one non-profit entity; distributions are divided between Academic Grants to individuals and Evangelical Christian organizations.

Evangelical Requirements:

The Foundation provides Grants only to those organizations and institutions qualified for tax-exempt status under 501(c) (3) of the Federal Internal Revenue code. Therefore, organization’s tax-exempt letter must accompany a completed Foundation grant request form and doctrinal statement of faith on the first application to the foundation. Any subsequent requests for funding will not require the tax-exempt letter or statement of faith if prior funding has been received from the Foundation. The Foundation does not distribute multi-year Grants.

The following doctrinal statement must be affirmed by the requesting organization in order to qualify for financial consideration.

We believe:

1. We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.

2. We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.

3. We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.

4. We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus-Israel’s promised Messiah-was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

5. We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.

6. We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.

7. We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the Gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.

8. We believe that God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.

9. We believe in the personal and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.

10. We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the Gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.
