The goal of the Cultivating Generosity Grant is to support activities that inspire giving for Christian impact through and in church and ministry settings. Eligibility for a Cultivating Generosity Grant Award is limited to those Christian Ministries who are located or who operate within Ventura and Los Angeles counties (California).  We consider grants fulfilling this purpose in the following three areas:

Church planting, church start-ups and expansion of the church

Ministering to homeless, poor, and disadvantaged

Ministry movements such as discipleship or stewardship
