Funders and Foundations

CRCC has enjoyed a close relationship with a number of foundations. Currently, for example, CRCC is administering a $3.5 million grant for the John Templeton Foundation on global Pentecostalism, which will result in competitive awards to seven research centers in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the former Soviet Union, as well as individual grants to fifteen scholars around the world. Because of CRCC’s knowledge of religious NGOs and congregations with civic interests, we are well positioned to do research that will inform funding initiatives by foundations. We are also able to facilitate relationships between congregations, faith-based organizing groups, and state and federal agencies.
