The Grace and Mercy Foundation supports the poor and oppressed, and helps people learn, grow, and serve.

What We Do

We partner with nonprofit organizations across the U.S. and around the world.

Serving the World through Sharing

Guided by our abiding belief in the power of grace and mercy, we share resources with our partners across five key areas. We also help our partners lead Just Show Up Book Clubs and Public Reading of Scripture gatherings.
We partner with organizations that help survivors of trafficking, refugees, the working poor, justice-involved citizens trying to rebuild their lives, and people experiencing homelessness.
We support K-12 schools, seminaries, colleges, parachurch organizations, the arts and sports organizations.
We support organizations that provide nurturing, learning, and healthy programs for families.
We support organizations that are helping people reach their full potential in their jobs and become leaders in their communities.
We work with local churches, church communities, and church denominations.

Promoting Lifelong Learning

Through our signature learning initiatives, Just Show Up Book Club (JSU) and Public Reading of Scripture (PRS), we help communities around the world learn through reading and listening together.
Just Show Up Book Club
JSU is a book club where people gather to read, listen, and discuss great books together. It’s the book club without any homework. The benefits include the ability to finish books by just showing up, learning from authors and other participants, building learning communities of all subjects, and much more. Additional information on how to join us or start your own book club can be found below.

Public Reading of Scripture
PRS is the biblical practice of listening to the Bible together. By reading and listening to Scripture together through PRS, Bible reading is more sustainable and enjo​​yable. Through our PRS app, we offer dramatized audio Bibles in many languages, built-in reading plans, and Bible tracking to create a delightful listening experience for all audiences. More information about PRS can be found below.
