There are very few private foundations dedicated entirely to funding projects within the Orthodox Christian Church. Consequently, a significant portion of the programs, projects, and organizations existing or developing in the Orthodox world have submitted grant proposals to the Foundation at one time or another. Since the early 1990s, the Foundation has awarded hundreds of grants worth millions of dollars to these projects. But while significant, the Foundation's resources are limited. Therefore, it has been forced to face the reality that it cannot possibly fund all - or even a fraction - of the worthy projects in the Church.
The Foundation is thankful for all contributions it receives. No matter the size, every gift to the Foundation allows it to help advance the work and presence of the Holy Orthodox Church in this world.
In addition to accepting donations, the Foundation is actively seeking to partner with other philanthropists and foundations in the Orthodox Church to solve the good problem that the Church now faces: the "problem" that there are many, many exciting, creative, and essential projects, programs, and organizations in the Orthodox world which need resources and support to succeed.
That is where you come in. Are you interested in supporting the work of the Orthodox Church? Are you an Orthodox philanthropist or foundation with the means and desire to participate in the growth of Orthodoxy in America and abroad? Involvement can be as simple as making a donation to the Farah Foundation itself to be used in support of Orthodox projects, or as engaged as partnering with the Foundation to discover and directly assist worthy projects and organizations. Joined together, an alliance of Orthodox philanthropists and foundations can ensure that the Orthodox Church receives the support it needs to spread the truth of Orthodoxy to a world hungry for its message.
Recently, the Foundation has partnered with an Orthodox Christian-owned soft drink company, which has placed the Foundation's logo on its products, and contributes 5% of its after-tax profits to the Foundation. If your business is interested in a similar partnership, please contact us.

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.
