Benevolence Fund

Benevolence Fund

Following a principle of tithing 10% of what we receive, the St. Andrew Benevolence Fund supports extraordinary ministries with financial assistance inside or outside the congregation where growth in faith, financial giving and/or Christian service are uniquely encouraged.

In the winter of 2023, the Benevolence Fund awarded grants to the Minneapolis Area Synod, St. Andrew’s Church Anew, HandsOn Twin Cities, the Center for Leadership and Neighborhood Engagement (CLNE), Assistance League of MN, Habitat for Humanity 2023, Fight the Trafficking 5K, Forest Hills Elementary School partnership, and PROP Empty Bowls.

Grant requests are considered quarterly and following the Benevolence Grant Application below.

Questions about the Benevolence Committee and Fund can be directed to Pastor Peter Johnson.
