Charles Colson Legacy Fund

Through Chuck’s humble service, God established two great ministries: Prison Fellowship, which serves and equips the Church to fulfill the Great Commission among prisoners and their families. And the Colson Center, which resources Christians to propose and live out a Christian worldview. It was Chuck’s vision that these two ministries would bring God’s peace and truth — His Shalom — to a broken world in desperate need.

The Colson family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Charles Colson Legacy Fund.

Make a donation in Honor of Chuck

Gifts to the Charles Colson Legacy Fund will further Chuck’s work, bringing God’s light into a dark world, making — as Chuck always said — “the invisible Kingdom visible” to God’s great glory.
