The KBF is like a river that flows and grows as it connects with other streams, feeding and giving life to everything in its path. Inherent in its mission is to be a facilitator of life-changing legacies for Kingdom advancement. Regardless of how large or small your gift might be, we can help you maximize the impact and multiply the benefits to you, your family and to the Kingdom causes that are near and dear to your heart.
Just imagine for a moment the impact on Kingdom advancement that has resulted from the distributions of the investment earnings from the accounts established with the KBF by the faithful and generous gifts of hundreds of Kentucky Baptists across the past 66 years of the KBF’s existence. Most of these accounts are perpetual, and therefore, will continue to advance the Kingdom until Jesus comes again.
Since 1945 the KBF has distributed $142M for Kingdom advancement through the various causes specified by the donors. These funds are over and above offering plate giving. Interestingly enough, $86M were distributed in the last decade (2011), $41M in the decade ended 2001, $10M in the decade ended 1991, $3M in the decade ended 1981, $2M in the decade ended 1971 and $.5M in the decade ended 1961. Wow! Hallelujah!
These funds have been used to connect people to Jesus Christ in your communities, throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, North America and to the ends of the earth. The ministries to and through which these funds have flowed like a river include local churches, associations, Campbellsville University, University of the Cumberlands, Georgetown College, Clear Creek Baptist Bible College, Oneida Baptist Institute, Mid-Continent University, Sunrise Children’s Services, Baptist Healthcare, Kentucky Baptist Assemblies, Kentucky WMU, Western Recorder, Kentucky Baptist Foundation, KBC Mission Board, Kentucky Ethics League, International Mission Board, North American Mission Board, Southern Seminary and numerous other Great Commission service ministries.
