The Cora Foundation provides support nationally for three primary program areas to qualifying nonprofit organizations. However, the Foundation is flexible and will consider exceptions based on the merits and potential impact of a specific project. The three program areas that will be considered for awards are:
The Education Program seeks to strengthen education at the K-12 level. The goals of this program area are to help reduce private Christian education costs, increase the quality of Christian education, and make a Christian education opportunity more affordable and accessible for a larger segment of the population. The foundation is interested in funding educational models and curriculum delivery methods that help achieve the program’s goals.
The Discipleship Program seeks to strengthen the making and maturing of Christian disciples. The goals of this program area are to encourage non-Christians to become followers of Christ and to help Christians mature and deepen their commitment to live as disciples of Christ. The foundation is interested in funding missionary, Church expansion, and discipleship building models and methods that help achieve the program’s goals.
Human Services Program
The Human Services Program seeks to strengthen the ability of Christian churches and ministries to provide human/social services to individuals and families in need. Programs that enable people to increase their self-sufficiency and improve their capability to lead a Christian life are a priority for this program area. The goals of this program area are to help reduce the costs of providing human services, improve efficiency of delivery of human services, and make these services more available and accessible to people in need. The foundation is interested in funding human services delivery models, methods, and programs that are innovative, repeatable, and reproducible by church and para-church ministries, and programs that have an effective Christian discipleship component.
