Endowment Gift Matching

Boost your church endowment's earning potential with a matching gift from the Foundation.        

The Baptist Foundation of Oklahoma will match one dollar for every four dollars your church places into an endowment, up to a $10,000 maximum match. This gift matching opportunity is limited and is available on a first-come first-served basis.

Why endowment?

Endowment builds long-term financial stability while simultaneously meeting short-term needs. It is designed to provide a perpetual stream of income by annually distributing a portion of the growth of invested funds while preserving and growing the principle. 

Imagine placing $40,000 into your endowment today. With a $10,000 match from the Foundation, that $50,000 will distribute $2,250 its first year. In 25 years, your endowment will:

  • Double its annual distribution from $2,250 to $4,570
  • Distribute a cumulative total of $82,000 ($32K more than original contribution)
  • More than double the principal from $50,000 to $101,600
  • Continue growing and providing income, indefinitely

Projections are net of fees. Assumes 7.5% growth and 4.5% annual distribution. Matching funds available on a first-come first-served basis. Funds must be deposited to qualify for the match; pledges for future gifts are not allowed. Available to any Oklahoma Baptist Church.
