Sharing the Love of Christ, through action
"God gives us time, gifts, and other resources according to our abilities, and he expects us to invest them wisely. We are responsible to use well what God has given us. The issue is not how much we have, but how well we use what we have." - - Life Application Bible - Matthew 25:15

What We Do
You change people's lives one at a time. We look for investments that will not only have a significant impact on someone's life, but investments where this impact may also be felt for generations to come. Some examples include:
Help someone get an education and their family will benefit for generations. So we sponsor school children in underdeveloped countries, and we provide university scholarships here at home.
Help grow a church congregation and the community will grow spiritually for generations. So we sponsor the building of churches, and mission trips to countries where we can spread the Love of Christ.
Bring hope in a desperate situation and you turn despair into potential. So we bring hope by providing humanitarian support around the globe, from AIDS orphans in Africa to families in need here at home.
We look for investments with the potential to change lives, both in the short-term and for generations to come. Here are some examples of what we do:
Missions - We have supported (and participated in) missions in fifteen countries across four continents, with several mission partners. Some have been humanitarian aid based, but all have been spiritually focussed.
Church Building - We have funded over 135 church and orphanage projects in 35 countries, including; Pakistan, India, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Columbia, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Napal, Myanamr, Malawi, Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Mali, Vietnam, Uganda, Togo, Thailand, Philippines, Bulgaria, Costa Rica and Russia.
Education - The way out of poverty is education. So we fund child and youth facilities in many countries. But one of our major initiatives is funding college scholarships here at home. Also visit the Holcombe Scholars website.
How We Do It
The Holcombe Foundation LLC does not provide support directly to individuals. We leverage our resources by providing support through other established organizations with demonstrated expertise in the area of need. We believe each organization (including ours) should focus on their core competency.
We select organizations that share our values and have demonstrated expertise in those areas where we feel a calling. This approach allows us to bless those organizations with support while allowing us to achieve maximum impact from our committed resources.
When the Holcombe Foundation LLC provides funding to an organization, we hold that organization accountable for meeting specific objectives. In some cases we may also become more actively involved with the organization, providing specific expertise in support of the organization's mission.
Why We Do It
We believe that every person is valuable to God, Christian and non-Christian. We believe that love and caring relationships - with others and with God - should be the foundation of everything we do. We believe Christians should celebrate their commonality in Christ as opposed to their differences in organized religion. We believe it is our responsibility to win souls for Christ.
