The Baptist Foundation of South Carolina believes that it is essential that we operate with a proven process built on our core beliefs as Christians, while striving to be as academically sound and professional as anyone in the secular market. We know that every dollar entrusted to us is God's money that has been given by Christian stewards for God's purposes.
Our investment process is founded upon three core principles:
One of our main objectives is to achieve the desired investment return of various accounts while incurring the least amount of risk possible. The Foundation reviews the risk (or loss of capital) associated with each asset class as it implements various portfolio allocations. In addition, investments are screened to avoid companies that are involved with alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography and abortion related goods and services.
With these core principles and the assistance from an institutional consultant, the Foundation utilizes multiple professional money managers to structure investment portfolios available to churches and ministries. This investment process makes the Foundation as academically sound as any secular institution or endowment providing similar services.

The Foundation can assist the church with developing an annual distribution strategy for ministry endowed and cemetery funds.
Endowed and trust funds given to the Foundation to invest for the benefit of a donor’s chosen ministry or ministries are invested as prescribed by the Foundation’s trustees. Endowed funds in which the Foundation has been entrusted to manage are invested in the Kingdom Fund with an annual distribution policy that provides steady annual payments without encroachment on fund corpus (principal).
