Serving You and Your Vision for Gospel Impact
We live in a time where great strides are being made for the Kingdom of God. Yet, we have work to do to safeguard the integrity of the church, make religious liberty flourish, protect lives from systematic oppression around the world, and reach the remaining multitudes of lost people. Our calling sits at the intersection of these two realities. The Georgia Baptist Foundation strengthens ministry efforts to help bring Gospel transformation to every part of life, in every place on earth, across every generation.
We do this by managing and producing funds for churches, ministries, and institutions, as well as helping generous givers contribute to their Spirit-led passions. Our timeless philosophy called Faithful Stewarding is rooted in the Word of God and guides every facet of our work — from our investment filter to our ability to provide steadfast returns. It is our joy to serve believers and hundreds of ministries as we follow God together in making all things new.
Established in 1941 as a ministry of the Georgia Baptist Convention, we have always focused on advancing and sustaining the work of the Body of Christ. Through the leadership of five previous presidents, our foundation has grown to what it is today, with 11 faithful staff members stewarding our progress. We’ve seen our accounts and assets multiply since our humble beginnings over 79 years ago, and now we are able to fortify hundreds of gospel ministries with over 10 million dollars in support each year. We look forward to continuing in our mission, striving to uphold our Baptist roots and owing gratitude for the eternal difference each small gift makes.
