Grants We Support

The Davison Bruce Foundation has been honored to provide grants to several worthy organizations. Our members take the responsibility of stewardship very seriously as we carefully consider each application. If you are seeking a grant and question whether your association fits our mission statement, it may help to see some of the organizations we have funded in the past. We will update the featured organizations below each year.


It is our pleasure to introduce to you just a few of the causes that have captured our hearts. As a family, we are honored to serve these organizations, and we are humbled to be a small part of their work. Invest in the mind, the body, and the spirit of humankind, blessing others that they may bless the world.

Way to Serve Ministries
The Way 2 Serve Ministries facilitates sharing the love of Jesus in practical ways. Teams of individuals engage in home repair projects, yard work, painting and other manual labor to rebuild the broken walls of the Opelika/Auburn community. The ministry also builds relationships through discipleship and mentoring in at-risk neighborhoods, as well as follow up visits to homes of elderly community members and group prayer.

Way 2 Serve’s commitment to the Opelika area struck a chord with members of The Davison Bruce Foundation who grew up and live in the community. Everyone, regardless of age or means, is eligible to serve in this local ministry. When we join together to help those in need, we serve The Lord and strengthen the community.

Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lee County
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Lee County offers youth ages 6-18 programs with impact during non-school hours. Club members are engaged in targeted programs in three key impact areas: Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles. One such program is “REAL Cents – REAL Change,” a learning series designed to further the enhancement and empowerment of teens through education, leadership and philanthropy. Teens gain knowledge about personal finances, wealth stewardship and philanthropy.

The Davison Bruce Foundation is grateful for programs like the Boys & Girls Clubs that teach life skills to middle and high school students. By encouraging young people to do well in school, motivating them to serve their community and charging them to take responsibility for their well-being, Boys & Girls Clubs are preparing youth for real world success.

Young Life of East Alabama
Young Life is a non-profit organization supported through the generosity of individuals, churches, foundations and businesses that care about kids and support our mission.
In many ways, Young Life is a “grass roots” organization. Most of the funds given to Young Life each year come from individuals and organizations who are committed to making a difference in the lives of kids in their communities.

Our hopes, prayers, and vision – The Mission of Young Life

Introducing kids to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their relationship with him.

What we hope and pray will happen:
Every kid in the East Alabama area deserves the chance to hear about Jesus Christ in ways they can understand and have the opportunity to make a decision concerning what they believe about him before they graduate from high school.

What we want to be about:

Jesus Christ is central to our lives and message
Prayer is our primary strategy for reaching “every kid”
We aim to have intentional and courageous “front lines” relationships with kids. We enter their world.
We are relational in every level of ministry (community, donors, committee, leaders, and kids)
Excellence in all we do. Everything is done as if we are doing it for Jesus (Col. 3:23-24)
Quality ministry happens through faithful, committed, and passionate teams
We strive to be authentic and approachable; to love with no strings attached
Grace is a vital element in our own lives, our dealings with one another, and ministry to kids

Homes of Hope for Children
Our Mission

The mission of Homes of Hope for Children is to serve children in crisis throughout Mississippi by providing strong, Christian homes to every child that lives on campus while ensuring that each child is loved unconditionally and has their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs met. Children We Will Serve

Our children will come from a variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds. Often, they will have experienced harmful situations and diverse family structures. Many of our children will come from courageous families who simply seek the best for their children. Due to our belief in keeping siblings together, we will serve both boys and girls ages 4-18 years of age.

Children will come to us from one of two ways. We may receive referrals by the state, or we may receive private referrals from community partners or from families themselves. The children that do come to Homes of Hope for Children will not be there because of any wrongdoing on their part but because of their circumstance in life.

We will have a full-time licensed counselor on our campus to provide services to the children and their families. Some children may stay with us for a few months, others a few years. According to statistics in the related foster care system, we can expect about 25% of the children who come to live with us to remain in our care until they graduate high school. One of our services will be working with the children and their families through counseling, with the ultimate goal of uniting the traditional family together when at all possible and only when it is best for the children.

Blood:Water Mission
Blood:Water Mission is a grassroots organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa. Blood:Water Mission is a non-profit organization founded by the members of the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band, Jars of Clay, and it exists to promote clean blood and clean water efforts in Africa, tangibly reducing the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic while addressing the underlying issues of poverty, injustice and oppression. Blood:Water Mission is building clean water wells, supporting medical facilities, and focusing on community and worldview transformation, both here in America and in Africa.

We recognize that numbers and statistics are hard to grasp, and that sometimes a step back is necessary to conceptualize the enormity of the HIV/AIDS crisis. Yet we also know that simply standing from a distance with arms thrown in the air is not a solution. We believe in pressing inward, in building relationships and bridges with communities in Africa. We believe in hearing personal stories and walking alongside brothers and sisters who have demonstrated strength and faith in the midst of desperate and tragic situations.

We hold fast to the conviction that we are all responsible for being good stewards of our time, our resources and our compassion in a broken world.

Every person has something to give in return for what has been received.

Please join us on this journey.
