Good Neighbor Fund
The Vox Good Neighbor Fund was established as a part of an intentional attempt to practice and teach generosity in Austin. The intention of the Good Neighbor Fund is to enable Vox covenant members to develop relationships and meet the needs of their community members both locally and globally.
The local missions team has been tasked with accepting Good Neighbor Fund applications, prayerfully discerning the needs of the applicants, and distributing the funds to the recipients. We have set up a process that allows Vox covenant members to act as sponsors for families and individuals in need. Any Vox member who becomes aware of a need in the community can fill out a Good Neighbor Fund application requesting assistance. It is a requirement that a covenant member serve as a sponsor, in order to vouch for the legitimacy of the need.
Please be mindful of this fund in the future as you hear of the needs of people in your local and global community. We strive to be a church that cares for the widows and oppressed in our community, and this is another way that we can serve as the hands and feet of Christ by meeting our neighbor’s needs.
Whether you are the Vox covenant member sponsor or an applicant requesting assistance, you can apply to the Good Neighbor Fund by simply submitting the below form online. The Partnerships Team will follow up with the sponsor and applicant in regards to the application.
