Kindred Charitable Fund

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. Members and friends of Kindred also generously support the fund with tax-deductible donations.

Applications for 2018 grants are now closed!

The Kindred Charitable Fund Grants Committee reviews applications in early December. All applicants will be contacted in December and successful grant applications can begin receiving funds in 2018.

Inspiring prosperous communities focuses on individuals or groups within a community bearing one another’s burdens, helping each other out in times of need. From its earliest days, Kindred has referred to this practice as mutual aid and we seek to encourage this support among our membership. Mutual aid includes supporting disaster relief efforts, faith-based schools, seniors' homes, and the work of the church in our communities. The Kindred Charitable Fund is an example of a unique program that reflects this element of Kindred’s purpose.
