Convoy of Hope has joined forces with Assemblies of God World Mission to deliver relief supplies to refugees in Ukraine and seven neighboring countries by working with AG churches and missionaries in the region. Convoy of Hope says it is also setting up warehouses, deploying relief vehicles and searching for farm land to set up help long term. Convoy of Hope has four stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 75.

The Resilient Project in Washington connects K-12 students in under-resourced communities in the Seattle area with trauma-informed mentors and access to skill-based training, music education, and academic support. In 2019, the nonprofit started with serving 15 youth. On Giving Tuesday in December 2021, it raised more than $100,000. 

FARMS International recently partnered with a church in Kenya to provide interest-free loans to five local business owners, including produce and livestock farmers and small store owners. FARMS combines Christian stewardship with interest-free loans to “work their way out of poverty” while also giving to their local church. 

Fellowship of Christian Athletes this month will present the Kay Yow Award to Elon University’s Charlotte Smith, who is in her 11th season as head coach of Elon’s women’s basketball team. The Kay Yow Award was first awarded in 2008, and is now presented annually by FCA to honor a basketball coach who has “exemplified biblical principles over the course of his or her career.” FCA has four stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 95.
