2023 Grant Information
Changing lives locally and throughout the world
The Church Mouse exists as a Christ centered entity to provide usable goods to the people of the community at a reasonable price, to assist people in need by pass-through goods and to provide funds to nonprofit Christian missions, Christian outreach and other local nonprofit organizations as requested in Jesus’ name. Our more recent giving history has been centered in these areas, for those in need:
Food, shelter, and clothing
Education and literacy
Physical and spiritual care for babies, children, the elderly, and those with disabilities or mental illness
Grants are made only to non-profit organizations certified as tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and are classified as “not a private foundation” under 509(a). The Church Mouse does not make grants or loans to individuals.
The Church Mouse awards grants twice per calendar year, with grant deadlines of May 15 and November 1. Grant applicants must be operational as 501(c)3 non-profit agencies for at least one year. The Church Mouse awards grants annually to Christian missions and ministries outside the USA; for all other grant applicants, strong preference is given to those applicants whose organizations are located within Beaufort and Jasper counties.

Applicants are eligible to receive funding no more than once per calendar year. Previous recipients should not assume that funding is guaranteed from year to year.
