Special Project Grants

The Tennessee Baptist Foundation offers grants to churches and associations for special projects that need supplementary capital.

Grants must be related to the work of a Tennessee Baptist church, entity, or institution that is in cooperation with the Tennessee Baptist Convention (TBC) or related to a US or international body that is in partnership with the TBC. The project must be a new initiative of the church, a revitalization effort of the church, or an evangelistic project. Grants are not available for personnel expenses, capital campaigns or building projects. The grant cannot be for the full costs of the project but is instead designed to supplement existing funds from other sources in support of the project. Grant awards can be no greater than $10,000 and cannot be for more than 50% of the total cost of the project. An organization can only receive a grant every three years. An award of a Special Project Grant is not guaranteed and is made at the absolute discretion of the Tennessee Baptist Foundation.
