Church Construction Grants

Churches can't survive, grow or be built on faith alone; they require funds to cover construction costs just like any other building endeavor. Fortunately, there are several resources that can provide the money needed. Sources for church construction grants fall into two main categories: denominational grants and private grants.

  1. Catholic Church Extension Society

    • The Extension Society was formed to expand the Catholic church’s presence in isolated or financially insolvent areas of the United States. The society provides grants for both building churches and for capital improvements on existing churches or Catholic schools.

      (800) 842-7804

    United Thank Offering

    • The national body of the Episcopal church provides United Thank Offering grants to congregations across the United States, provided that the money used has a significant impact on the church community. In other words, construction money to build a church food bank would be considered, while a request to add air conditioning to a building would not.

    J. Bulow Campbell Foundation

    • This foundation provides assistance to religious institutions in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina. Unlike many foundations that have capital campaigns and construction projects low on their list of priorities, the Campbell Foundation gives preference to requests for the funding of new churches.

      3050 Peachtree Road, NW

    Raskob Foundation

    • This private foundation focuses on Catholic-based projects. While it does fund construction projects, they are not the primary goal of the Raskob Foundation and are not high on its priority list. This does not mean, however, that your church should not apply; often, smaller requests--those under $200,000--are met with acceptance.

      The Raskob Foundation
      P.O. Box 4019
      Wilmington, DE 19807
      (302) 655-4440

    Dan Murphy Foundation

    • This foundation concentrates its efforts in the California area but is not exclusive to the state. Founded in 1959, the Dan Murphy Foundation funds a wide variety of projects with an emphasis on those that benefit the community.

      The Dan Murphy Foundation
      800 West Sixth St.
      Los Angeles, CA 90017
      (213) 623-3120
