What We Do
Our purpose is to extend the hand of Christ to others.
Since 2009 we have contributed over $250,000 in grants.
Teach about Christ
“The finances of our church were not in a situation where it was feasible to hire a student ministry associate. Grace Commons Foundation’s grant helped us kickstart a staffing initiative and bring on an intern 3 months earlier than we had hoped. The staff member helped run the middle school ministry for a year, where he poured into the lives of kids and leaders.”

"Through Grace Commons Foundation's grant, Cornerstone brought me on board initially to work with a group of 6th graders. Through weekly gatherings we’ve walked through the ups and downs of their lives, discussing video games, sports, and just about everything else. Two years later, I’m still with these kids and look forward to what God has in store as they enter high school and beyond.
"It is awesome to grow and learn in my own faith under the leadership of this church. I have discovered that my true passion is leading middle- and high-schoolers on their walk with the Lord."

"The grant funding our purchase of a bus has been a game-changer. The Annex Bus has been an important investment for our ministry to college students. It has become the critical link for dozens of students to Jesus and each other."

Care for Those in Need
"At Bridge House, one of our premier programs is called Ready to Work - it's a work first program designed to help people experiencing homelessness get back to mainstream work and independent housing. Ready to Work, Boulder, employs 44 individuals experiencing homelessness in one of 2 social enterprises - - landscaping and supplemental sanitation or culinary arts (Community Table Kitchen). Our trainees work in the program for approximately 1 year. Trainees are required to remain clean and sober.
"Grace Commons Foundation's contribution of $10,000 was an essential part of Bridge House's capital campaign to build housing for our trainees. 4 years ago, we redesigned an office building at 4747 Table Mesa Drive to provide housing for our Ready to Work trainees. Ready to Work house offers dormitory style housing for all of our 44 trainees. At the house, our trainees receive meals and case management as they complete their program. To date, Ready to Work has a 75% success rate and has graduated 170 people. 100% of trainees pay up to one-third of their paycheck on rent.”

"With the help of the grant from the Grace Commons Foundation, we executed a successful Inaugural Fundraising Gala for the new Boulder Pregnancy Resource Center (BRPC). We doubled our anticipated attendance and raised over $155,000! The event generated much-needed financial support, which extends through new monthly donors. In addition, we have built new relationships and raised awareness in our community of the services BPRC offers. The momentum created by the event will enable us to further our vision of serving people facing critical reproductive choices with hope and healing."
