odf grants program
In 2017, ODF implemented a grant-making process to provide funds for Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Oklahoma related programs, ministries and missions.
Over the years, several permanent endowments have been established by donors or through closed church memorial funds with specific, varied purposes to provide ongoing funding to the Foundation’s grant program. The endowments support ministries and missions for children, youth and young adults as well as provide for the education of clergy, laity and congregations on the guidance and art of spiritual giving.
Endowments also provide funding to benefit healthcare ministries for seniors, church innovation, missions, pastoral support and ecumenical spiritual education for students. View the endowment summaries at the link above.
The Grant Committee has allocated 2018 Grant Funds and the checks were mailed in late March. The grant program awards funding based on events or programs with potential to make the greatest impact. Details of the 2018 awards are outlined below and 2017 awards can be found at the 2017 Grant Allocation link below.
