About Us

Our History

The Acts of Grace Foundation was established in 2006 as a Canadian private foundation, in response to God’s blessing in the lives of the founders, Alan and Donna Lambshead. Realizing that these resources were not given just for their own personal benefit, the Foundation was established to provide grants to Canadian charitable organizations whose programs meet needs of people locally and around the world.

The name “Acts of Grace” comes out of the biblical principle that God calls us to mirror His grace in our lives through acts of love and generosity to others. As 1 John 3:17-18 says, “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”

From its inception, the Acts of Grace Foundation has relied on its Granting Committee to make granting decisions. In 2015, an Administrative Director was hired to further enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the Foundation as it pursues its mission.

In all of this, the founders’ hearts’ desire is that, by tangibly pouring out God’s abundant grace on others, organizations will be empowered to transform lives and God will be glorified.
