Who We Are

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation dedicated exclusively to the work of the Orthodox Christian Church. Our goal is to provide funds to non-profit organizations to help them carry out unique and innovative projects that support the work of the Church. Our grant recipients are engaged in all areas of Church life, from humanitarian efforts and missionary labor to education and scholarly work. The Foundation hopes these projects will help spread the Orthodox Christian message while improving the quality of life on earth.

Partner with Farah

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded the Church to be the presence of the kingdom of God on earth. Sharing that kingdom is the primary work of the Farah Foundation. Please consider helping us continue and expand the unique work of the Foundation for Orthodox Christianity.

Important Notice

The Virginia H. Farah Foundation has made the difficult decision to not consider grant applications in 2018. It will next consider grant proposals in 2019. The next grant application deadline is now July 1, 2019. The Foundation apologizes for this late notice and any negative impact this may have on organizations that were planning to submit a grant application in 2018. This decision was not made lightly. The Foundation is working on a project it hopes will exponentially impact its giving capacity, thereby increasing its ability to fund more of the grant proposals that are submitted to it in the future.
