DescriptionThe Foundation, founded in 2000, gets its name from the ancient city of Antioch, where early followers of Jesus were first called "Christians" and where St. Paul began his missionary journeys. The Foundation welcomes inquiries from organizations working in the areas of faith, education, medicine, and humanitarian need. Faith grants support church construction and remodel; the production of audio, video, and online training materials, and summer youth programs. Education grants are awarded for classroom technology; tuition assistance; teacher training seminars, and special education programs. Medicine grants support hospital and clinic expansion; technology upgrades; research, and community health outreach. Humanitarian grants support natural disaster relief; water filtration and purification initiatives; temporary housing, and food distribution. Priority is given to pilot programs, startup costs, and building projects. According to the wishes of the Foundation's founders, faith-related grants will only be given to Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and other church bodies in fellowship with WELS. Although many of the Foundation's grants are awarded to groups in Wisconsin and Minnesota, grants are not geographically restricted.
