Overview:

Versacare, Inc

We are an independent foundation which has been serving Seventh-day Adventist ministries and a select few other humanitarian efforts with financial grants since 1990. We are a self-funded lay organization, and our board is comprised of both lay Adventists and present and former Adventist church employees, all committed to furthering the Kingdom of God and to restoring the “image of God” in those in need. We invite you to explore our website and read our history, learn about some of the wonderful programs we have supported and review our grant guidelines to learn if your organization qualifies for a Versafund grant.

Selection of Educational Technology Grant Recipients

Applications that fulfill all above qualifications are entered into a random-selection computer program to ensure applicants an equal chance at a grant award. A final 120 institutions will be selected. The Board will make its final decision at the time of the Versacare Annual Board Meeting, as funds are available. Those institutions selected in 2019 will not be allowed to apply until the 2022 Grant Cycle.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

  • Applicant Qualifications:
    • Function as an official school within the K-12 system of the North American Division.
    • Have in place a board-voted technology plan outlining the STEM technology or equipment in use or being considered, whether new, replacement, upgrades, and professional development, if any, is anticipated for teachers to guarantee the use of the technology for the students’ best interests (teacher development is not a permissible STEM grant expense).
