GO Community Grants

Date: January 1, 2015 - July 1, 2017

We have set aside a portion of our budget to give away to charities in our community.  The Grant money will be available to Life Groups who submit requests to the Serve Team.
Grants can be either given as a cash gift to an organization or to fund a project that will benefit the organization.
Grants can be given to:
  • Any charitable organization with a mission consistent with the mission of our congregation.
  • Within the general zip code range of the Beacon.
The grant must be used in month assigned or the money will return to the Grant fund.
Members are encouraged to add their own funds to the grant when necessary.  Additional funds may be available upon request and are dependent on the number of unused previous grants.
We will try to honor time sensitive requests, but the Life Group must decide together, and no guarantees are made.
I don't know who I should give to, do you have any ideas?
Yes, Here is a partial list of ministries and organizations we partner with locally:
  • Canyon Acres
  • Campus Crusade for Christ
  •     @ Santiago Canyon College
  •     @ Chapman University 
  • Orange County Rescue Mission
  • Blind Children's Learning Center
Other Ideas:
  • Local schools
  • Local nursing homes
  • Crisis pregnancy centers
  • Boys & Girls Clubs
  • Partner with some of the other families in your grant month for one big project.
