About this funder:




Joanne and Ron Birtcher were born and raised in Christian families; their parents understood and taught them the Lord’s expectations for marriage, child rearing and lifestyle. They believe that Christian values are the foundation for strong families.

By having sustained Christ’s values in their marriage and faith, they have learned that it is only through Jesus Christ that their salvation and eternal life have been granted. Their prayer is that the Birtcher family might all continue in the Lord’s hands and always seek His presence and guidance, that the love for Christ will be actively shared with our children as well as the unsaved throughout the world.

Our Mission 

Working in cooperation with churches and other Christian organizations, we provide grants for physical assets on foreign mission fields that are used to promote Christian evangelism and discipleship.

The Foundation provides grants for physical assets that are used to promote Christian evangelism and discipleship outside of the United States. We limit our grant funds to foreign missions because we believe God has richly blessed the United States with a strong Church presence, a variety of Christian schools and Universities with many who freely contribute to their ongoing support. This is not the case in many parts of the world so our focus is on those nations and missions outside of the U.S. who do not enjoy such strong financial resources and opportunities.

Grant proposals may be submitted anytime. The Birtcher Family Foundation trustees meet four times each year to consider grant awards.
