APPLICATIONS

Thank you for visiting our website. We would like to inform you that all Mergon allocations have been temporarily halted due to the impact of COVID-19. We will therefore unfortunately not be able to accept any applications for funding at this time. For any specific needs directly related to serving the most vulnerable in our communities affected by COVID-19, we have established a GAP Fund. Please click on the GAP Fund link for additional information and criteria for funding. May God continue to bless your Kingdom efforts.

APPLICATION PROCESS

To proceed please complete the pre-application screening as the first step of our application process. Once you have reached the final question in the pre-screening phase you will be allowed to complete our Letter of Introduction.

Does your organisation align with the foundational Biblical values of the Mergon Foundation ?
Is faith in Christ central to your calling and is your vision focused on expanding the Kingdom of God?
Mergon’s mandate is focused on expanding the Kingdom of God through intentional preaching of the Gospel, discipleship and assimilation to a faith community.
We regret to inform you that we do not partner with any organisations who fall outside of these parameters.
We trust that you will find a funder that aligns with your vision and who will be able to support your work.
Is the main purpose of your submission to support ministry activity focused on Africa or the Middle East?
Mergon’s current funding strategy is focused on Africa and the Middle East and we do not fund work in other regions.
Please submit an application to funding organisations who align with your geographical area of focus.
Are your organisation’s activities focused on one or more of the strategic areas as discussed in our regional strategies page
Mergon’s regional funding strategy is currently focused on the strategic areas listed above and unfortunately we do not fund activities in other focus areas.
We trust that you will be able to apply for funding at organisations who are more aligned with your areas of focus.
Mergon is passionate about the local church. We firmly believe that the work of the church should be supported by its own members and therefore we don’t resource general church budgets. We support Christian non-profit organisations rather than local churches.

Is the reason for your submission to fund your general church budget?

Do you currently operate with an annual income budget of at least R 1.8 million and can this be supported with audited financial statements over the last 2 financial years?
Mergon seeks to be excellent stewards of the resources entrusted to us and seek the same for the organisations we fund.
We invest in medium to bigger organisations with a wider scope of impact that is scalable.
If you are a smaller organisation we trust that you will find a funding partner that is aligned with your vision.
