The Idlewild Foundation exists to serve our Lord Jesus. We also enjoy serving those who love Him. We are able to offer a wide variety of services, including:
- Support for more than 50 foster families caring for more than 80 foster children. We help in a wide variety of ways including counseling and therapy, connecting them with caring people who can help, and assisting with financial support.

- Free estate planning to widows and widowers who are members of Idlewild Baptist Church.
- Seminars and educational opportunities for people of all ages. We hold an annual estate planning seminar and have added a seminar for parents and their college-bound students to better prepare them for the future.
- An undergraduate college, vocational, and technical school scholarship program for active Idlewild members with a financial need. Click here to go to our scholarship page for more details.
- We were blessed by a generous couple who were themselves 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 in the lives of many – and you can join in! Ask us how.
- Financial assistance for persons seeking to adopt.
- We offer guidance and wise financial counsel for those struggling with financial difficulties.
- We offer Christ-focused donor advised funds and we counsel donors as to the advantages and operation of such funds.
- We help and support the widow ministry of Idlewild Baptist Church.
- We give grants to Idlewild Baptist Church and to Christian ministries that exist to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
And that is only a small part of what God allows us to do! What we offer is without cost and is done as a service to our Lord. Call us for more information and see if we can help.
