A nonprofit charitable organization est. 1991
The Foundation is a permanent endowment fund which allows members to make tax-deductible contributions. Unlike most giving, these contributions are not spent immediately on ministry, but are invested instead. The earnings from these investments are used to support the mission of First. Contributions to the foundation can be made to honor loved ones. The donated funds are maintained in a Foundation account and are invested and administered by a board of trustees. Any distributions from the Foundation are used as the church membership directs.
So, the money you give to the Foundation grows the principal amount. The investment earnings on that principle provide a perpetual source of income that the church can use today, tomorrow or whenever it is needed. Giving to the Foundation is an opportunity to make a legacy gift that will advance the ministries and mission of First Baptist Tulsa for generations to come.
The Foundation Enables You:
- To impact lives for Christ beyond your lifetime.
- To perpetuate financial support for the church you love.
- To donate gifts in behalf of loved ones and/or friends you wish to remember in a lasting way.

We are excited to announce a partnership of the First Baptist Church of Tulsa Foundation with the Baptist Foundation of Oklahoma (BFOK). The BFOK provides free estate planning assistance and attorney fee reimbursement to individuals who are interested in leaving a gift to Baptist ministries in their estate plan. For reimbursement, the gift must be at least 10% of the estate where at least 5% of the gift is going to any combination of Southern Baptist Ministries.
An estate plan is for everyone. It maps out critical end-of-life decisions like your will, children’s guardianship and healthcare directives, while empowering you to support Gospel-centered ministries like First Baptist Tulsa. The process can begin online, over the phone, or in person with BFOK representatives.
