3Hopeful Hearts, Fort Collins, Colorado
3Hopeful Hearts has been truly blessed by the amazing gift of support by The Antioch Foundation.  Being a fairly new non-profit, having Antioch behind us gave us what it took to move forward with our passion to help bereaved parents.  The loss of a child is the unthinkable and something no one imagines could ever happen.  With Antioch's support, we have been able to grow our yearly remembrance and honoring events and offer parents everything from in-home visits to ongoing support groups to help make their journey hopefully a little easier.  We are honored to be able to walk this journey with them and without the generosity of The Antioch Foundation, our journey would be that much more challenging.  Thank you!

Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minnesota
The Antioch Foundation is a generous supporter of the gospel ministry at Martin Luther College.  Over the last four years, grants from Antioch allowed the WELS College of Ministry to remodel and refurbish several classrooms, provided financial support for marriage enrichment seminars for engaged couples, and supported projects for our athletic programs.  Most recently, Antioch funding supported a Mandarin teacher on campus.  We are sincerely grateful for this partnership.  The Antioch Foundation has been a tremendous blessing to WELS ministries in many, many ways.

Risen Savior Lutheran School, Mankato, Minnesota
In the last seven years, Risen Savior Lutheran School's enrollment has increased from 27 to over 80 students.  Thank you to The Antioch Foundation for helping us offset some of the costs of furnishings and equipment for four new classrooms.  Each of the new classrooms has a whiteboard with a SmartBoard projector and computer interface.  Student desks and chairs were also purchased.  The Antioch Foundation serves as a fine example for Christian stewardship.  We will continue to be thankful for the grant money and for what it has allowed us to do to support full-time, quality Christian education in grades K-8.

Loving Arms Childcare Center, Messiah Evangelical Lutheran Church, Wichita, Kansas
Thank you to the Antioch Foundation for graciously providing us with $20,000 in grant funding to partially fund a project to finish and furnish two classrooms (including an infant room), add additional parking, and make technological improvements in our child care center.  The Spirit of Christ, working through you, is enabling expanded ministry opportunities.  The Holy Spirit will not let his workers come back empty handed.  God's continued blessings to you!

St. Peter Lutheran Church, St. Albert, Alberta, Canada

Many thanks to the Antioch Foundation for their $35,000 grant.  This grant helped St. Peter Lutheran Church move ahead with its building project after ten plus years of planning!  On September 8, 2013 this congregation of 100 souls broke ground on a 3,200 square foot addition.  Construction for this and for the refurbished sanctuary should be completed in early March, 2014.  Please keep this project in your prayers!

Free S.P.I.R.I.T. Riders, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
"The Antioch Foundation helped Free SPIRIT (Special People in Riding Therapy) Riders provide services for those whose families did not have the resources to pay our service fee. The smiles on the faces of the participants says it all as they improved their posture, balance, strength and endurance. When we needed to update our accommodations, Antioch helped out with funds for a battery operated door opener."

The Big Knight, Luther High School, Onalaska, Wisconsin

"The Big Knight is an annual dinner/auction fundraiser that supports tuition assistance at Luther High School in Onalaska, WI.  This event would not be possible without the aid of The Antioch Foundation.  The grants that have been awarded to The Big Knight have allowed us to conduct an event that has raised $45,000, $50,000, $52,000, $55,000 and $63,000 to assist the students of Luther High School with their tuition payments.  Many thanks to The Antioch Foundation for their part in making such a difference in the lives of these Christian students!"
