A Resource for Wesleyan Evangelism for Over 70 Years

The Foundation for for Evangelism is a Methodist-related grant-making organization located at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. Chartered in 1949 by Dr. Harry Denman, then the General Secretary of the Board of Evangelism of the Methodist Church, and a group a visionary laymen, it was designed to “diffuse the blessing of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Today, we carry out that intention by providing grants that can be a catalyst to equip disciples to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. We focus our grant-making in three specific areas:
