Estate planning for the glory of God

Through faith-based estate planning and planned giving guidance, we help Tennessee Baptists steward well the blessings God has given them today to advance the Kingdom of God tomorrow.

7 out of 10 people die without an estate plan in place.

This means they miss the opportunity to decide what happens to their assets — to use them to bless the next generation of believers.

Through faith-based estate planning, planned giving guidance, church fund management and more, the Tennessee Baptist Foundation helps individuals, churches and associations build strong bridges to the future, expanding their Kingdom impact for years to come.

Who We Serve

We provide estate planning guidance, planned giving guidance and other tools and resources that help people use their gifts to not only provide for their families, but to also bless the next generation of believers, continuing their Kingdom impact even beyond their lifetimes.

We work with churches and associations to help them set up and manage ministry funds, facilitate building and expansion loans, establish planned giving funds, provide special project grants and share our expertise via workshops and seminars. Each of these initiatives allow churches to plan for the future and expand their impact for years to come.

We are committed to investing in the next generation of believers, so we provide several college scholarships annually to Baptist college students in Tennessee, including seminary and medical students.
