What the Foundation Supports

The Foundation assets, which totaled $41,903,082 at the end of December 2017, are divided into four primary fund categories, based upon the intended use of the assets. Included are:

  • assets donated to provide growth and development of worship, education and fellowship programs, all of which are designed to deepen and enhance our faith
  • assets donated to pay for maintenance and enhancement of BMPC buildings and property
  • unrestricted assets donated for such purposes as the Foundation leadership, in its discretion, shall deem appropriate
