2017: A celebration of your generosity!

by NCF staff  |  January 25, 2018  |  Type: News

Throughout 2017, our team at NCF was so privileged to serve you and thousands of other givers whose generosity was on display for a watching world. Thanks to your love and sacrifice – and God's grace – over 25,000 ministries received critical funding, which led to countless souls across the globe being fed, clothed, adopted, healed, saved, and loved in the name of Jesus Christ.

There’s no way to fully measure your impact, but nevertheless, numbers do tell part of the story. So we’d like to share a few highlights with you*:

  • $1.3 billion in giver-recommended grants went to charities (up 26% over 2016)

  • $1.7 billion in gifts were made by NCF givers (up 9% over 2016)

  • 17,000 givers were served by NCF around the world

  • 25,000 charities received grants to fund life-changing work

  • $679 million in non-cash gifts such as stocks, real estate, and businesses were contributed

  • 208,000 grant checks were sent to charities (up 17% over 2016)

From our entire team to all the givers, ministries, churches, charities, and advisors we serve, we say God bless you and thank you!

May the Lord guide us together as we follow Him in another year of mobilizing resources by inspiring biblical generosity.

About the photo (from Samaritan's Purse)

Like the girls in the picture, thousands of Iraqi men, women, and children fled their ISIS-controlled homes and sought safety in refugee camps. Here, families were embraced with food, shelter, and the hope of Jesus. Many of today's displaced refugees are children who have suffered unspeakable tragedy. Yet in the midst of such a horrific crisis, these girls and many others get to laugh, play, and reimagine a world that's marked by love, rather than voilence.
