In 2017 we gave 137 grants worth between £150-£1000 to libraries and schools across the UK and abroad . The demand for good Christian books is huge. We receive grant requests totalling more than twice as much as we are able to give. With more funds, we know we could have even greater impact. You could help us by donating today. All of our core costs are underwritten by Andrews Property Group so everything you donate goes toward grants.
What grants for Christian books to libraries and schools achieve:
- Borrowing of Christians books increased by an average of 54% in libraries.
- A 48% increase in the overall enjoyment of Christian books above other books in libraries.
- Libraries report a 53% improvement in readers being able to retell a story from the Bible and a 51% improvement in readers’ understanding of Christian practices such as prayer and forgiveness.
- There is a 44% increase in readers being able to understand the Christian approach to life issues such as worry or be-reavement.
We use Christian bookshops local to the applicant to supply the books, helping them to continue to offer Christian books in their community. You can mention a specific grant application with your donation.
