Vessel Christian Foundation was formed in 2007 by Christian leaders and pastors in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
We exist to serve our donors by helping their gifts have maximum impact on God’s kingdom.
We exist to serve our partners by directing donor’s gifts to their ministries and missions.
We exist to serve those who will benefit from the generosity of others who are more fortunate.
Vessel Christian Foundation is honored to serve as the non-profit arm for the I Run For (IR4) ministry. Below is a message from IR4 Founder and Project Manager Tim Boyle:
Tim Irunfor Boyle
As you all may know, my good friend Kerri Drees passed away in August. She was so instrumental in the growth and promotion of IR4. She did a story at Your Q-FM about me running for Michael Wasserman which started the IR4 boom. Just months later she introduced me to Michelle Walters of Vessel Christian Foundation who is the umbrella corporation we receive our nonprofit status from.
It is our turn to honor Kerri; since we run for those who can't let's give for those who can't. IR4 is teamed up with Q-FM - Shine The Light, Inc. for the 250K race October 2-4th, 2013. The goal is to raise $250,000 for Q-FM and Shine the Light, Inc., which in turn will also benefit IR4!
We are asking for donations $10 or more to reach IR4's goal of $20,000 BY Oct. 2nd! So please, if you feel like this is something worth taking part in, donate now to the link below and show that IR4 can and will move mountains! Kerri On!
