For Churches

The CBF Foundation offers account administration, investment and fund management, and endowment fund promotion services to churches and fellowship ministry partners. Whether your fund is a scholarship fund, building fund, cemetery fund, ministry fund, or just an operating reserve, we offer a variety of prudent investment vehicles.

We provide monthly accounting statements, quarterly investment performance summaries, and can help establish and administer planned gifts (payments & 1099’s) with your donors to benefit your organization.

Endowment Promotion Services

Because endowments are so significant, the CBF Foundation provides specific promotion services such as:

  • Offer private consultation and workshops on endowment promotion strategies
  • Conduct seminars on the importance of endowments and how churches and organizations use them to support missions and ministry
  • Lead seminars on giving through bequests in wills, charitable gift annuities, and charitable trusts
  • Assist with direct donor solicitation
  • Help find trustworthy professional advisors for your donors

Fund Management Services

The CBF Foundation offers a full range of investment options specifically designed for churches or ministry organizations. Whether you intend to use all of your funds in less than a year or keep the principal invested permanently, we have a fund or combination of funds that will meet your needs.
