Tyndale House Foundation primarily grants to internationally based organizations and organizations in the Chicago Metropolitan Area. We seek to work with organizations who prioritize serving in both Word and Deed for the glory of God and the edification of the church.

We are only able to make grants to U.S. 501(c)(3) organizations. If your organization is based outside of the contiguous United States, you must have an existing agreement with a fiscal sponsor to apply for a grant from Tyndale House Foundation.

Our granting strategy is to fund a wide variety of projects in partnership with organizations that align with our mission and purpose and who deploy strategic and faith-based approaches to their mission.

Our main granting areas include:

Because of the broad nature of our granting, we cannot share a comprehensive list of proposals that would not receive funding. However, the following areas do not fit into our granting strategy:

  • Grants to Individuals
  • Scholarships
  • Capital Campaigns
  • Projects that are political in nature, including requests for lobbyings
  • U.S.-based projects outside of the Greater Chicago Area focused on a narrow geographic region without broader impact

If your project falls into one of these categories, please assume that it will not be a fit with our granting strategy


In 2022, Tyndale House Foundation will test running two grant cycles.

April Grant Cycle: November to April
October Grant Cycle: May to October

Applications for our October grant cycle will open on May 1, 2022. See our grant calendar for a detailed look into our grant cycles.

As a grant recipient with Tyndale House Foundation, you will be required to provide and submit receipts of grant payments, budgets, audit statements, and follow-up reports. One thing that makes our foundation unique, is that our grants are not just checks that you receive in the mail. During the time that a grant is active, you are considered part of the Tyndale House Family. We pray regularly for our grant partners and are always interested in hearing about how things are going. This is ministry. Working together on behalf on the kingdom, with each of us playing our part and prayerfully supporting one another every step of the way.
