How we are funded

The charitable work of BRF Ministries is funded by income generated through our charitable activities and by donations from individuals, churches, gifts in wills, fundraising campaigns and charitable trusts.

Sales of our books and resources, along with fees from events and training and our other charitable activities, generate around half of our funding needs. However, to provide all that we offer across Anna Chaplaincy, Living Faith, Messy Church and Parenting for Faith, we depend on the generous support of people like you.

In 2022/2023 our thanks go to 6,042 Individuals, 176 Churches and 57 Charitable Trusts who helped us to make a difference to thousands of individuals and churches. Hundreds of supporters also purchased our greetings cards.
