Four Percent

November 14, 2022
By Dr. Susan DeMoss

Recently, CHA was blessed to be invited to the Herzog Foundation’s development training course in Dallas. The Herzog Foundation exists to catalyze and accelerate the development of quality Christ-centered K-12 education. Our vision is for families and cultures to flourish through quality Christian education. While at the conference, the question was raised about grant writing as a method of revenue raising for non-profit schools. The speaker shared that grant writing is often not feasible because only four percent of all non-profit funding in the United States is from a grant. On October 26, 2022, an anonymous donor notified CHA that they would donate $2 million if CHA raised $1 million in gifts and pledges by March 2023. CHA is in the four percent.

With only four percent of all non-profit funding in the United States coming from grant money, this opportunity is again evidence of God at work at CHA. One might wonder, “How can we raise $1 million in four months?”

Philippians 4:6 states, “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”

This is an all or nothing offer from this gracious donor. Since October 26, CHA has received $200,000 towards our $1 million goal. Thank you for praying that God may use you to partner with us as we meet the CHAllenge whether through a cash donation, donor-advised fund, electronic fund transfer, or two-year commitment. You may donate today.
