“FaithLife Financial Chapters have served churches and communities with many acts of kindness for over 45 years. We are grateful to all Chapter members for leading initiatives that have inspired others to build a better world.” – Karen Bjerland, FaithLife Financial President & CEO
A new “chapter” in our history
As Chapter members, you have exemplified FaithLife Financial’s mission of building a better world and we are grateful for the many ways that you have volunteered in your churches and your communities.
After conducting market research, we have developed a new fraternal outreach program, ACTION TEAMS. This new member benefit will engage the next generation and is an easy way for members to involve their family and friends to support the causes they care about.
As of January 1, 2019, our new and exciting member benefit, ACTION TEAMS, will replace the current Chapter program of Matching and Fellowship Grants. Now, one member can volunteer to lead an Action Team fundraiser or service project and we’ll help fund the event.
Although the program has changed, our vision is constant and we continue to believe that what makes us different is the difference we’re making together with you, our valued members. This is the ongoing story at FaithLife Financial and we invite ALL members to be part of this exciting new member benefit in 2018 and beyond.
Here’s how the Action Team Benefit Works:
Think about an unmet need in your community or the world and how you and a group of volunteers could help. You can apply online to lead an Action Team and once your project is approved, FaithLife Financial will send you a kit with seed money to help fund your event or service project.
YOUR ACTION TEAM KIT WILL INCLUDE:
- $150 cheque in seed money to help fund your event or service project
- LIVE Generously NOW t-shirts for you and your team
- Planning and promotional materials
- A banner to inspire engagement at your event
- Stickers to share with volunteers and participants
Frequently Asked Questions
May I still complete the Matching Grants events that have already been approved for 2018?
Yes, you are welcome to complete all Matching Grant events you have already submitted an application for in 2018.
How do I receive my already approved remaining Matching Grants in 2018?
May I apply to lead an Action Team in 2018, if my Chapter has already held two Matching Grant fundraisers?
Yes, as a member of FaithLife Financial, we encourage you to apply to lead an Action Team in 2018.
Do Action Teams require that more than one FaithLife Financial member lead a team?
No, it takes only one FaithLife Financial member to apply to lead an Action Team. The idea is for you to invite family and friends to volunteer alongside you.
Can the Action Team seed money be used to purchase items, match donations or act as a grant?
The Action Team seed money cannot be used to purchase items (gifting), match donations or act as a grant for the cause/charity. It is meant to help fund your event so you can raise even more for the cause you care about. Please click here to see examples of Action Team ideas.
Do I need to still keep track of Fellowship hours?
Yes, please remember to continue to keep track of your Fellowship Grant volunteer hours and submit them, via email, to email@example.com after your Fellowship activity is completed.
