What is the Christian Church Foundation?


Since 1961, the Christian Church Foundation has served the church’s mission and vision through planned giving, endowment funds, and other avenues through which donors can charitably distribute their gifts within the church and the world. The Christian Church Foundation works with individual donors, local congregations, legacy congregations, regions, and other ministries of the church to determine their passion for ministry and discern together the best way they can use their gifts to support ministry.

Our calling is to invest your resources and manage your gifts to leave a lasting legacy of change for good in this world. In the words of President Gary Kidwell, “Our purpose is to make distributions that produce dollars for ministry. Moving money to mission – that’s what we do.”
