The Kindred Charitable Fund is an endowment that offers annual project grants to churches and charitable organizations. Established in 1999, with an initial endowment of $360,000 to Abundance Canada, the endowment has distributed almost $750,000 to over 135 churches and charities in our communities.
To ensure the fund’s long-term growth, Kindred donates 1% of pre-tax earnings annually, in addition to donating $1 for each $1,000 in Mastercard purchases.
We’re pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the Kindred Charitable Fund grants. Each year, projects are selected from many submissions which help support our purpose of inspiring peaceful, just, and prosperous communities.
In 2018, the Kindred Charitable Fund will disburse $79,500 in grants to 18 churches and charities, which includes a $10,000 focus grant; $59,000 in regular grants; and $10,500 in multi-year grant commitments.
