Project Examples


The SAT catalyst Fund will only invest in projects which have been thoroughly vetted for feasibility and missional impact. More information can be found on our vetting process on the Details page.  Below are just a few of the companies and organizations we know of who are candidates for Performance Philanthropy and Impact Investing through the SaT Catalyst Fund.  Besides these, we can work with individual churches, non-profits and kingdom-minded businesses to develop new ones.

Business as Mission – Sunshine Nuts Co.

At the Sunshine Nut Co., our mission is to serve the poor, widowed, and orphaned of Mozambique. Through employment, in a productive economic engine, we replace dependence with independence, hand-outs with hand-ups, entitlement with earned income.


Fighting Poverty with Dignity

“When we do ‘for’ someone what they could do for themselves we actually diminish and disempower them. As well-intentioned as our efforts have been, our one way giving has unconsciously communicated to the recipient that they have nothing to contribute.”
