To give hope and encouragement by providing FREE Christian resources for distribution within the United States.
WHO WE SUPPORT
We feel called to support established ministries or organizations: service professions (members of the military, police officers, firefighters, and disaster relief efforts), prison ministries, healthcare efforts, children’s programs, and at-risk populations (homeless shelters, food banks, soup kitchens, clothing and food ministry events).
HOW WE BEGAN
The Foundation was established as a direct result of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings and the Founders’ desire to reach the hurting. What started with a few boxes of donated books has now grown exponentially and touched millions of lives for the Kingdom.
“The 1687 Foundation Book Ministry is a vitally important resource for your ruck sack. They provide a variety of quality Christian books and devotional resources at absolutely no cost to the recipient. They offer these resources to a broad range of ministry settings: Military, VA, Public Safety, and Civil Air Patrol chaplains, as well as hospital, hospice, healthcare, disaster relief, prison, recovery programs, children’s programs, and under-served outreaches. I encourage all Christian chaplains to avail themselves of this powerful resource in support of your great work for the Lord Jesus Christ.“
—Chaplain (Major General) Doug Carver, US Army, Retired.

God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.
Hebrews 6:10 (NIV)
The 1687 Foundation is self-funded and does not accept donations. Anyone who would like to make a donation, may we suggest the Military Missions Network, Puppies Behind Bars, or another military ministry program. We have provided direct links for your convenience.
The 1687 Foundation has no affiliation with these ministries.
MILITARY MISSIONS NETWORK
The Military Missions Network (MMN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported through the generosity of individuals, churches, ministries, foundations, and businesses that care about military singles and families, and support our mission on their behalf. This ministry relies on the freewill offerings of those who believe in the vision, mission and integrity of the MMN. All support is deeply appreciated! Donations are tax-deductible.
PUPPIES BEHIND BARS
Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement. Puppies enter prison at the age of eight weeks and live with their inmate puppy-raisers for approximately 24 months. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it. PBB programs bring the love and healing of dogs to hundreds of individuals every year. The dogs bring hope and pride to their raisers, and independence and security to those they serve.
