Kingdom Builder Foundation Grantees

KBF Spring 2024 Grantees

Announcing Recipients of Spring 2024 Kingdom Builder Foundation Grants

The spring 2024 granting cycle for Kingdom Builder Foundation achieved a significant milestone by awarding our two hundredth grant. This accomplishment was made possible by the generous legacy giving of members and friends of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church (SBPC). This spring cycle allocated just over $70,000 to 10 grantees. The granting committee, consisting of SBPC members, assessed applications based on logical and objective criteria using personal and corporate Christian Discernment. Grant awards support ministries and missions worldwide, in line with Christ-centered principles and dedicated to serving meaningful causes. We are excited to experience how God is at work, advancing his Kingdom here on earth, as these funds are used. Please join us in praying for the work of the following grantees:
