A giving circle
We support Black and Brown Christian leaders and minority-led ministries in the Baltimore area, for racial justice and reconciliation, towards the peace and unity of the church.
Why Sunday Fund exists
Sundays are complicated. As followers of Jesus, we celebrate God's promise of unity-in-diversity in Revelation 7, and we lament the continued relevance of Dr. King's words from 1963:
"At 11:00 on Sunday morning when we stand and sing 'In Christ there is no east or west,' we stand at the most segregated hour in this nation. This is tragic. Nobody of honesty can overlook this. Now, I'm sure that if the church had taken a stronger stand all along, we wouldn't have many of the problems that we have."
This divide is also present in philanthropy. The Witness Foundation puts it well:
"Due to historic inequality, many Black Christian leaders struggle to raise funds to fuel the vision that God has given them for ministry. These individuals and organizations often do not have generational wealth, or relational or professional networks that many white Christian organizations draw from in order to raise support."
We are united by our love for Jesus and our commitment to generous justice and ethnic conciliation in the church and in our city. If you want to learn more about these issues, we have shortlists for you to read, listen to, or watch.
