Feel called to do something to alleviate hunger in your community? But you don’t have the time to research and monitor the agencies that deliver these services. Our new Field of Interest Fund might be perfect for you!
Your gift from the heart, along with gifts from others who share your passion, accumulate in a Moravian Field of Interest Fund. The Moravian Ministries Foundation in America (MMFA) immediately provides you with your tax receipt and handles any acknowledgement communication on your behalf if your gift honors or remembers someone. Money in the fund becomes available in the form of grants to projects and/or organizations that alleviate an issue or minister to others within the communities where the Moravian Church in America has a presence. Churches, ministries, and agencies apply for grants by documenting their program plans and measurable objectives. A board of Moravians accepts grant applications from qualified organizations. The board advises MMFA on where to disperse funds (i.e. where to award grants). MMFA takes care of the due diligence to make sure recipients use the funds according to the grant criteria.
It’s simple because all you have to do is respond to God’s call with your gift. It’s smart because the recipients have a documented plan to use the funds wisely and your foundation will be watching. The board of Moravians who make the grant decisions are unpaid volunteers. MMFA handles the due diligence to make sure the funds are used according to the purpose given, as we do with all the planned gifts we manage.
