ABOUT US

OUR STORY

In 1983, The Protein Foundation was created by a group of Christian businessmen in Connecticut with a vision for feeding hungry people in Christ’s name, particularly during a time of crisis. Rather than soliciting funds for the Foundation, these men set about acquiring and operating businesses to fund the Foundation. It is through their ownership of privately held businesses that the Foundation has been funded. Since 1983, the Foundation has granted funds to Christian ministries around the country and abroad. Today, the majority of its ministry partners serve in New England and Michigan with a few active outside the U.S.

At the Protein Foundation, we:

Create networks of expertise and knowledge

Grant funds to Christian ministries

Provide coaching upon request
