Our History & Future
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
The Dunwoody Baptist Church Foundation (the Foundation) was established nearly 40 years ago by Dunwoody Baptist Church (DBC). It is a 501 (C) (3) corporation, which funds God’s work at home and around the world.
In 1983, the Cecil B. Day Family committed a sizable donation to DBC with a vision of expanding God’s Kingdom around the world through Missions. The funds received were transferred to the Foundation to be invested and administered. Since that time, the Foundation has contributed approximately $7 million to mission activities and impacted thousands of lives in Atlanta and in countries around the world.
DBC has established a rich history of giving, owing largely to the vision and commitment made long ago by the Day Family. During 2014, DBC celebrated its 50th Anniversary, and we were reminded over and over again of how God had blessed our church. We paid tribute to our beginning and now we begin to celebrate the future and where we are going—with a renewed commitment and dedication.
We invite you to participate in God’s efforts here and around the world by making a Legacy Gift to the Foundation. Join us in opening our hearts to our community and to the world. Let’s make the next 50 years an even more robust time for supporting God’s efforts. Such generosity will enable the Foundation to provide funds for missions, capital improvements, community outreach and ministries that expand God’s kingdom.
