Another Granting Partner!

In addition to the multitude of generous donations the Nathaniel Mission receives from individuals, groups, and churches, the operation of our ministry requires significant funding through securing grants. Ministry is expensive, particularly ministry focused on improving the wellbeing of impoverished neighbors and neighborhoods. The Nathaniel Mission’s Children and Youth Development Opportunities, those programs aimed at addressing critical gaps in educational support for young individuals along the Versailles Road Corridor, is an important aspect of our work toward the transformation of our communities. Our summer camps, after school programs, and other initiatives are an investment in our neighborhoods that truly does lead to restoration, but not without a high price tag.

Therefore, it is with immensely grateful hearts that we write to inform you that The Nathaniel Mission has received an especially generous grant through the Lexington-Fayette County Urban Government’s Extended Social Resources grant of $70,000.
The Nathaniel Mission is proud to receive this first-time award through the City of Lexington as our government officials seek to support organizations like ours doing important work in underserved areas of our community. We are thrilled to know we have secured much of the financial resources necessary to impact the lives of our young neighbors, offering them critically important educational, developmental, and relational support.

Many thanks to the Lexington-Fayette County Urban Government Office of Social Services, and to our God who continues to equip the Nathaniel Mission with the resources necessary to transform our communities!
