In 2 Corinthians 9:11 we are told, “You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.” When you provide a gift to the DBC Foundation Living Legacy Program, you share the love of Jesus and make an eternal difference with your donation, corporate matching, will, irrevocable trust and financial estate. Your generosity today will leave an impact for years to come.
By investing intentionally in DBC missions, counseling and mental health, long-term campus facilities and other special ministry areas you can continue to bring significant change to thousands of people while achieving the highest purpose of bringing glory to God.
The DBC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created in 1975 to faithfully manage donations and estate gifts with a third-party investment manager. The first large gift was made by the Cecil B. Day family. Thanks to the accumulating power of time and faithful investment, that initial gift plus the additional gifts of others has already distributed nearly $8 million to kingdom-building mission causes and it continues to contribute to missions and mental health causes today.
You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:11

About the Foundation
The DBC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) legal entity managed by a Board of Directors. Each person is elected by the church and is a DBC member and/or staff member, including our Senior Pastor.
The Board of Directors is charged with overseeing third party investment managers who professionally invest the donated funds into prudent well diversified instruments that provide long-term investment returns. The Board actively evaluates needs, opportunities and disbursements.
They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life. 1 Timothy 6:18-19
