For You Ministries Grants
At For You Ministries, we believe God is calling students to make a difference in the world. So, we offer grants for individual students or youth groups to use their God given creativity to come up with new solutions to existing problems in their own communities. You can learn more about the requirements and fill out an application below.
Eligibility for Grants:
Individual students or youth ministries who have attended a For You Ministries event (Breakthru or Mission Week).
For You Ministries will offer up to $15,000 in grants in a given year. A maximum amount of $3,000 is available for any single grant. Grant award winners will meet (in person or virtually) with a For You Ministries staff member every two months to give updates on the project/program and submit 6 and 12 month written reports from the time of grant awarding.
