Giving Guidelines

Please note that all grants must remain entirely anonymous.

The Domanada Foundation considers grant proposals from organizations that are:

  • Christ-centered, with a primary focus on theological education, leadership development or issues of justice and compassion;
  • Located in Central and Eastern Europe or the Chicago area, where ongoing, face-to-face relationship is possible;
  • New, small or mid-sized;
  • Requesting a grant proposal strategically designed to build the organization’s funding base, especially through matching grants or focused on specific projects with clearly defined goals;
  • And, registered in the U.S. as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

The Domanada Foundation generally will not consider grant proposals that:

  • Provide funding exceeding 5% of an organization’s annual budget;
  • Provide institutional support for larger non-profit organizations and ministries;
  • Fund building projects or endowments;
  • Provide personal support or academic scholarships for specific individuals or families;
  • Address financial problems within an organization;
  • Support organizations that we cannot visit on a regular basis;
  • Or includes multi-year proposals.

The Domanada Foundation can make a final determination regarding a grant proposal when the following is submitted:

  1. A concise grant proposal.
    A one-page executive summary must accompany all proposals. Please include a brief description of the ministry or organization, the amount of the request, and the specific use of the requested funds.
  2. A copy of the organization’s current annual budget and list of the Board of Directors.
  3. A copy of the organization’s IRS 501(c) 3 designation letter.

Please note that all grants must remain entirely anonymous.
