one TALENT at a time
We are excited to introduce The Generosity Project, an overall church engagement project to support our CBWC church family. This first portion is a series of short videos to help us step into conversations around Why we give, How we should give, Where we should give and more!
"Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.” Luke 6:38 MSG
Vision Statement: To be a trusted partner of Canadian Baptists of Western Canada, resourcing its affiliated congregations and ministries while inspiring stewardship and generosity.
Mission Statement: The CBWC Foundation exists to provide resources and competent counsel on fundraising, stewardship, planned giving, investments, grants, and trusts.
We affirm the ownership and sovereignty of God over all things including the resources that have been entrusted to us. This conviction guides all we do.
We act open-handedly and with a missional heart in all our relationships, believing that generosity lies at the core of Christian stewardship.
We seek to be open, transparent, and ethical in all our activities, fostering the confidence of our constituency, government agencies and the public.
We seek to perform our duties with care and in full accordance with fiduciary and regulatory obligations.
We will work in all our relationships under the framework of a covenant community; recognizing that how we live together is a reflection of the gospel.
How We Operate:
Through its Mission Principles, the Board prescribes for the President the major ends to be achieved by the Foundation. These ends are in harmony with the following objectives of the Foundation:
to financially support the ministries of the Canadian Baptists of Western Canada and its associated and affiliated charitable organizations;
to provide additional support, primarily to the Canadian Baptist of Western Canada and its associated and affiliated charitable organizations, in the form of expert counsel, oversight and administration in all aspects of fundraising, stewardship, planned giving, investments, grants, trusts, and loans;
to do all such things as are incidental to the attainment of the above objectives.
