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! Ask us how.

Special Needs Field
The Idlewild Foundation was blessed with the opportunity to raise funds and handle the finances for the construction of the Idlewild Baptist Church Special Needs Field on its campus.
Lighting Up a Field
Through the generous donations of many people, God allowed The Idlewild Foundation to raise the funds to light the ball fields of the Ken Whitten Sports Complex at Idlewild Baptist Church. This has added many hours of additional available time for sports practice and activities and has greatly increased the outreach capabilities of the recreation ministry of Idlewild Baptist Church.
Supporting the Fight Against Trafficking
We have recently been blessed with the opportunity to support, along with Idlewild Baptist Church and Hope Street, Inc., three fine ministries battling the damage resulting from the sex trafficking that is so serious in the Tampa Bay area. May God bless and strengthen them in their fight.
Hope Starts Here
In mid-2018 The Idlewild Foundation as asked for a grant of $100,000 to allow Hope Street of Tampa Bay along with One More Child to complete the purchase of 17 acres to develop a Compassion Center to better allow them to minister to the needs of the Sulpher Springs area.
