The story of who we are and how we began

The Idlewild Foundation exists to serve our Lord Jesus. We also enjoy serving you at the same time.

The Idlewild Foundation – Our Origin

Through the generosity of Idlewild Baptist Church and many believers, we offer free estate planning to widows and widowers as well as education, guidance and assistance in estate planning for all. We have a scholarship program for active Idlewild members with a financial need. We offer financial assistance for persons seeking to adopt. And we give grants to Christian ministries that exist to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also promote generous giving in cooperation with Generous Giving because it is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35. For more details see Our Services on our menu or call us and see if we can help.

TIF is one of many nationwide Christian foundations that have joined forces with The National Christian Foundation (NCF). Since 1982, this network has granted more than $6 billion to over 40,000 churches and ministries worldwide, all made possible by generous donations from people who care.

TIF offers expert counsel and innovative, flexible giving solutions to help:

  • Individuals and families make a greater impact with their charitable giving, give practically any asset entrusted to them, and balance their giving with their income needs
  • Churches and ministries offer their supporters creative ways of giving, which can lead to significant new funding for their organizations; and
  • Professional advisers (financial planners, CPAs, attorneys, and others) present charitable giving expertise to their clients, which turns their practice into a ministry and builds stronger relationships

The National Christian Foundation, with which TIF works, is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
