“Honor those leaders who guide you.
Overwhelm them with appreciation and love.”
1 Thessalonians 5:12-13

The Kairos Benevolence Fund

The Kairos Benevolence Fund is a non-profit ministry established  to Honor the Legacy of ministers and missionaries and respond to the urging of the Apostle Paul to Honor, Appreciate & Love.

It is a ministry devoted to:

  1. Identifying kingdom servants who have served faithfully and well but now are facing significant financial or health crises;

  2. Providing benevolent grants to meet those unique needs in ways that bless these ministry colleagues and honor God.

  3. Partnering with churches and compassionate donors to raise the funds necessary to meet these needs.

I love being part of our non-denominational network of churches - for many reasons! But there are things that groups with more structure sometimes provide that we haven't done as well. Thankfully, Kairos Benevolence Fund has stepped into one of those gaps in assisting great servants of God who face financial hardship in their later years. The Benevolence Fund is well-conceived, well-structured, and well-managed. It is a gift from God to wonderful, deserving people.

THE NEED

In our hearts, we would like to think that each minister and missionary is appreciated and compensated at a level similar to those who make their living in the business world. Unfortunately, that has not always been the case.

Imagine your parents or grandparents entering retirement without social security benefits, a pension plan, long-term health insurance or equity in a home. For many aging kingdom servants, every day can be a challenge; do they buy groceries or pay a utility bill? Do they repair their car or their hearing aid? Do they purchase their prescriptions or pay their rent? These are the kinds of realities facing some ministry colleagues who sacrificed everyday benefits to spread the gospel to our cities, rural communities and to our neighbors around the globe.

The Kairos Benevolence Fund provides assistance to aging Christian Church ministers and missionaries facing specific health or financial crises. Partnering with churches and individuals to raise gifts and donations, we make benevolent grants honoring the legacy of these faithful Kingdom servants.

Your gift will make a difference for these Kingdom servants who have served so faithfully and so well. 

GRANTS

The grant process consists of three distinct components:

(1) Raising awareness of the urgent need among aging Christian leaders;
(2) Evaluating grant applications
(3) Distributing funds to meet those needs.*

Contributions to the Kairos Benevolence Fund are administered and disbursed under the supervision of the Board of Directors and the control of the Kairos Benevolence Fund Grant Distribution Team. Kairos Benevolence Fund employs fundraising strategies that include support for specific projects or approved benevolence applications provided that confidentiality is maintained or permission is received from the grant recipient. Gifts to the organization that indicate a preference for a particular project are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. In the event that a specific project is overfunded, gifts will be used to meet another project of the Kairos Benevolence Fund.

*At the discretion of the organization, charitable gift acknowledgments with similar disclosures will be provided for all gifts that conform with this policy. The Kairos Benevolence Fund reserves the right to accept or reject the gift accordingly.
