Foundations Like Versacare and SFFC Impact Adventism in Fresh Ways

As the president/secretary of the Versacare Foundation, Tom Macomber oversees a self-funded organization with a board comprised both of lay Adventist Church members and current and former church employees. “We created the Versacare Foundation in 1985 as a vehicle to fund Adventist ministry efforts,” he says. “In 1990, we awarded our first grants, and we have funded 1,600 grants for $31 million since then. In the world of foundations, that's a small amount. However, within Adventism, that's a very significant amount of funds going towards ministry efforts—a large number of them going to individual efforts by congregations.”
