The Idlewild Foundation is a ministry with a mission to teach Biblical stewardship and to disciple those with the spiritual gift of giving. We provide stewardship and estate planning consultations through our office and through relationships with other like-minded organizations, including the National Christian Foundation, and qualified professionals. We develop and support seminars and small group opportunities such as wills and trusts seminars and Journey of Generosity events. We offer Christ-focused donor advised funds and we counsel donors as to the advantages and operation of such funds. Through resources donated to the Foundation from the community, we also assist in the funding of ministry projects through the issuance of grants such as for the Idlewild Special Needs Field, the Ken Whitten Sports Complex lights and many more.
One example of making a difference comes from a donation made to The Idlewild Foundation years ago by a generous couple who were blessed by God’s generosity. They wanted to establish an endowment which would generate funds into the future and even past their work-days and lifetime to help support Idlewild Baptist Church. Since they established this endowment, thousands of additional dollars have been added to it by donors and all the proceeds go to the ministries of Idlewild Baptist Church. That is lasting and heartfelt generosity that is making a difference – and you can join in!
