Fred SmithFor more than a decade we have looked to the Bridgeway Foundation as an example of creativity, innovation, rigor and respect for ministries and organizations. It’s not just their programs but their way of thinking about their work that inspires us.

John PelloweBeyond its grants, Bridgeway Foundation has made a significant contribution. It was at the forefront of encouraging the building of infrastructure, which many short-sightedly underfund. Later it was at the forefront of promoting collaboration. Today they are focusing attention on innovation and experimentation.  I am truly inspired by the leadership Bridgeway has given to our Christian community.
