The 100 Shares Tampa Bay Grant!

For the last two years, Man Up Tampa Bay has applied for the 100 Shares Tampa Bay grant. Our first year, we made it to the finalist stage and did not receive the grant. The Lord still provided the amount that we had requested for! This year, we applied for $100,000. This $100,000 will help us create resources for churches to mobilize men to fight for the fatherless in their communities. We will be creating content, trainings, and more to make this process as replicable of an experience as possible.

As of April 22nd, 2022, Man Up Tampa Bay won the $100,000 grant to mobilize men for generations in the fight for the fatherless. Thank you to 100 Shares for your faith in what God is going to do through our ministry. Thank you Jesus for how you provide and guide us as we seek to obey your calling.

Kansas City is Manning Up!

March Gathering

  • We had 20 come on Monday to our Q3 Gathering – we talked about our mission to fight for the fatherless, we celebrated our past projects, and talked about some upcoming spring clean up projects.

Sink Install

  • Last month two of our members (Brian Varney and Mark Stern) replaced a leaky sink for a single mom in our program. Now she doesn’t have to empty the ever filling bucket of water under her drain!

Shoe Shopping

  • Last month one of our members (Paul Banister) took two of our AAF kids out shoe shopping. He wanted to give these young men a cool new pair of shoes that they could be proud of. Paul even went on to tell them that if they could show him good grades next semester that he would take them out shopping again.
