The Joshua Wave was founded in 2014 by a group of Christians who saw all the lost and broken in the world and asked themselves one simple question, “What can we do to help?” We believe foundations are really about helping people and decided to create a foundation that promises that 100% of your donations will go towards the cause, not towards overhead.
The meaning behind the name
We frequently get asked where our name came from. It’s actually based on Joshua from the Bible and how he was a great leader. Joshua represents a generation of people who have been called by God to lead. Joshua also means “The Lord is salvation” and through our many outreaches and efforts we strive to bring people closer to God. The “Wave” is all about our ability to impact one another on a grand scale. Think of Pay-It-Forward’s idea where you help three people and those three people help three each. We want to create a Wave of Change for this world and it all starts with you.
