Aims and activities

Aims and questions

The Christian Funders’ Forum is a group of executives of grant-making trusts and foundations. Members of the forum grant more than £60 million a year to Christian work.


  • To network, encourage and provide peer support to Christian grant makers and philanthropists
  • To learn from each other, sharing, shaping and encouraging best practice in grant making and philanthropy
  • To work together wherever that is possible: sharing resources; commissioning research; considering match-funding; or promoting Christian projects.


The Forum meets three times a year. Members can also share information with each other in a secure area of the Forum's website.

How to get involved

Membership of the group is free. To enquire about joining, contact the organisers here.

Learning and Resources

As part of their working together, the Forum hosts the Christian Funders’ Forum Awards, shining a light on innovative projects and best practice, and celebrating the outstanding work done by churches, charities and volunteer groups across the UK. These awards have not been held since the Covid-19 pandemic but it is hoped to start them again. Details of past awards can be found here.
