While the Baptist Foundation of California is primarily a managing foundation and not a granting foundation, we do facilitate a limited number of grants to Southern Baptist churches and ministries through the SoCal Baptist Ministries Endowment Fund. SoCal Baptist Ministries is a religious nonprofit organization created through a $20 million endowment provided through a ministry that was started by The First Baptist Church of Norwalk.

This fund focuses on providing missions and ministry grants to California Southern Baptist churches and their related organizations and entities. Each year Southern Baptist churches and ministries from all over California receive grants to help pay for mission trips, outreach strategies, and ministry projects that include an evangelism component within the project or event.

To apply for a grant directly from the Baptist Foundation of California, please fill out our Grant Application.
