The Foundation’s mission is to manage resources in order to support the work of the churches and the D.C. Baptist Convention. It offers churches consultation in stewardship, assistance in fund-raising, and guidance in building endowments.
The Foundation manages its investment portfolio to earn resources that can be used to provide scholarships for seminary students, construction loans for churches, and support for the mission work of the D.C. Baptist Convention.
The DCBC Foundation has scholarship money available for seminarians. If you are planning to attend a Baptist seminary or a seminary with a Baptist studies program and are a member of a D.C. Baptist Convention church, you may be eligible for a scholarship. Please contact us for more information or click here for an application. Returning students may reapply here.
In addition, if you are the chair of a D.C. Baptist church building committee and need a loan of up to $200,000 for church construction, the DCBC Foundation may be able to help. Find out more about our loan policy or download a loan application here. You may also contact us at 202.234.7194 for more details.
The Foundation actively seeks to work with those who are interested in making legacy gifts to their church and/or to Baptist causes supported by the D. C. Baptist Convention. Whether this be a bequest through a will, a charitable gift annuity, a life insurance property, or through some tangible property, we will happily assist you in thinking through this legacy decision.
