National Christian Foundation Hits Grant Milestone

The National Christian Foundation (NCF), a grant-making network based in Atlanta, Ga., announced today that it awarded its 3 billionth dollar since the founding in 1982.  The organization announced the news in a press release, and have also released a short video to thank their supporters.  NCF National President David Wills had this to say about the news:

"We’re grateful to be able to offer givers a foundation which helps simplify giving and multiply the impact. This is just the latest milestone in the modern-day Christian generosity movement, and we're excited to play a part in this historic time of giving."
CityTeam Ministries, a Christian nonprofit in San Jose, Calif., was the lucky recipient of the historic grant.  They got it after being recommended for a $300,000 grant by Hugh Maclellan of the Maclellan Foundation in Chattanooga, TN. 

This is not the first major news that recently has come out of NCF.  Earlier this year, they announced a nationwide expansion with their 25 affiliates.  They also developed a new brand and updated their website.  Visitors to the site can follow a nationwide giving blog, which gives them the opportunity to connect with givers and other experts from across the country.  Make sure to visit their site to find out more about the organization.
