Malachi 3 Foundation


Welcome to Malachi 3 Foundation

The Foundation was founded in 2003 and has been making grants since 2006. Malachi 3 represents God’s promises to bless those who “bring the whole tithe into the storehouse”. We believe the funds provided to the Foundation are a specific blessing from God and therefore reflect this blessing through the Foundation’s name and our granting activity.

Our Mission is to:

  • Support Christian faith based organizations, including, but not limited to, missions and churches;
  • Teach and communicate Biblical principles; and
  • Help those in greatest need and provide opportunity for those with talent and determination.

 Malachi's Giving Statement

The Malachi 3 Foundation desires to advance The Gospel locally and globally as directed by The Great Commission.  Our intent is to equip and train current and next generation leaders in three key areas: 

1) the Sanctity of Life

2) the Christian Discipleship of Youth, and

3) by helping to “lift-up” the Poor & Needy to break the cycle of poverty 

We choose to partner with organizations that create practical opportunities that challenge individuals to learn how to live their lives with integrity & discipline with the hope that they would be called to faith in Christ.

 Malachi 3:10-11

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. “Test me in this” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” “I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit” says the Lord Almighty.
