Grant history

Mission

The Kendrick Foundation was established in 1977 by E. Gretchen Kendrick of Brookline, Massachusetts to promote the dissemination of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The majority of funds are distributed to charitable organizations that spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in America by radio or television broadcasts or by such other medium (electronic or otherwise) as the trustees may deem to be a feasible approximation to radio or television broadcasting in light of then-existing technology.

Guidelines

The deadline for applications to the Kendrick Foundation is June 1. Decisions are made by the Trustees after June 1 and applicants will be notified of the decisions concerning the award of grants by the end of August.

The Trustees give preference to financially sound organizations that demonstrate the ability to reach a large radio or television audience, audiences reached through electronic devices or audiences without previous access to programming. A substantial portion of each year's grants is made for the purchase of broadcast and recording equipment. In making equipment grants, the Trustees favor proposals for the entire purchase price of the equipment needed or partial funding for equipment if funding for the balance of the purchase price has been secured previously by the applicant organization. The Trustees also consider assisting organizations with development and production costs associated with specific broadcast programs.

In selecting each year's recipients, the Trustees are guided by a desire to achieve geographic balance within the continental United States. Due to the large number of applicants seeking funding from the Foundation and in light of the limited funds available for disbursement, it is the practice of the Trustees to rotate the Foundation's support from year to year among qualified organizations. The typical size of grants made by the Foundation is between $2,500 and $10,000.
