The American Baptist Foundation is a center through which planned gifts, the result of estate planning, may be made for all American Baptist ministry and mission, from congregational efforts and regional camping experiences to outreach across our nation and around the world. The Foundation's ministry of encouraging giving through wills and estate plans began in 1985 through the efforts of American Baptist Educational Ministries and National Ministries. In 1989, two other American Baptist groups joined; they were International Ministries and a corporation composed of a majority of American Baptist regions. This cooperation by different members of our faith family provides a model for good stewardship of talent and resources.
