The foundation does not accept unsolicited Letters of Inquiry or grant applications. All Letter of Inquiry and grant applications are by invitation of the foundation's Directors only. The foundation Directors initiate the application process based on their funding interests and research of ministries. Unsolicited contacts by individuals or organizations unkown to the Directors will not be considered.
Both new and existing programs meeting the mission, vision and current program areas of the foundation will be considered for grant awards.
It is the intent of the founders, and the current practice of the Directors, to award grants to ministries that are visibly Christian and whose purpose is to influence people to lead a Christ centered life. Influencing people to lead a Christ centered life can be accomplished directly, through evangelism or discipleship programs, or indirectly by providing for educational, physical, and emotional needs within a Christ centered context.
The Cora Foundation’s criteria for funding include alignment with the Cora Foundation’s mission and vision statements, program areas and foundation principles. When a grant application aligns with the aforementioned criteria, funding guidelines are then applied to further narrow down the pool of invited applications.
