2019 Matching Gifts Campaign

It’s on!

We have $10,000 in matching funds! Our year-end Matching Gift Campaign in ON! Now we need our circle’s support to raise another $10,000 to secure the matching gift!

Please help us meet our goal!!!

We have until December 31st, and every donation helps us on our journey! Together we met last year’s matching gift goal–let’s do it again!!

Please join us in nurturing children’s spirituality and building the Kingdom of God through the Godly Play Method!



The short answer is that your gift to the Godly Play Foundation goes directly to the work of bringing quality Godly Play to children of all ages throughout the world—directly to our vision of enlarging our circle to include every child of God. See a sampling below of how we have stewarded last year’s gifts. I wonder where this year’s gifts will go?


We do it together!

Over the last couple of years we have been:

Increasing our scholarships for training and materials to support churches who have the time and talent but are lacking the treasure to launch or expand their Godly Play program

Adding new story videos to our YouTube page

Revising and expanding the Old Testament Extension stories published in The Complete Guide to Godly Play, Volume 6—similar to the work completed on Volumes 2, 3, and 4—so these stories can be shared more easily throughout the world

Continuing to bring together pediatric hospital chaplains who are Godly Players for hospital specific trainings, including training two new Trainers in Clinical Godly Play this past summer in Dallas to be able to better serve this important audience

Ensuring continued support for families making Stories of God at Home a family tradition – including videos for how to incorporate your family’s important stories

Developing trainings specifically for clergy to ensure church leaders know what they need to do to support their programs

Enlarging our US Missioner program to ensure trained, local support is available nationally and calling a new class of Missioners in 2020

Funding the movement of people and materials to bring Godly Play to new circles across oceans– including the first training in Russia and the rapidly growing interest in South America and the various ways it is being implemented with profound effects

Populating additional social media platforms, such as Godly Play with Seniors and Pinterest

Collectively throughout the world, we have been working toward these goals and have many accomplishments. We also have many exciting projects in line for 2020, including the U.S. Training of Trainers to be held in Ft. Worth in the spring!

Please join us in building the Kingdom of God through the Godly Play Method!
