The Foundation for First is a permanent endowment fund which allows members to make tax-deductible contributions that will impact lives for Christ beyond their lifetime by perpetuating financial support for their church. The interest produced by the money given will benefit First Baptist Tulsa until the Lord returns. Contributions to the Foundation can also 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.
For more information about the Foundation or to have a Foundation trustee visit your community group with more information, contact the finance office at (918)594-5014.
We are excited to announce a partnership of the Foundation for First with Waters Edge. Waters Edge 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 estate 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 Waters Edge representatives.
