When you give, you partner with us to renew God's world.

Your gift to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship will ensure the long-term presence of CBF field personnel in the United States and around the world, provide ministries and support to churches and individuals and offer hope, compassion and empowerment to men, women and children who have been forsaken and forgotten by others. Thank you for joining us in renewing God’s world.

Ways to Give

Financial Contribution (cash gift)
For every dollar you give to CBF, 85 cents go directly towards the ministries and mission of CBF. Your gift helps local congregations thrive, nurture a growing community of young Baptist leaders, promote racial equity and justice and share the love of Christ throughout the world through the long-term presence of CBF field personnel. You can give online or if you prefer you may also give by mailing a check payable to "CBF" to:
Cooperative Baptist Fellowship
P.O. Box 102972
Atlanta, GA 30368-2972

Congregational Giving
Churches are encouraged to make direct contributions to CBF in one of two ways. First, checks can be sent directly to CBF using the address: Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, P.O. Box 102972, Atlanta, GA 30368-2972. When sending a check, we ask that congregations complete, print and include the CBF Remittance Form with your contribution. This allows us to ensure that your gifts are applied to the areas that you want to support. Click here to access the Remittance Form.

Second, churches may also give online using a credit card. Currently, online giving for churches is restricted to three areas: General Budget Support which funds CBF Mission ad Ministries causes, the Offering for Global Missions and the Emmanuel McCall Racial Equity Fund.

If you have further questions about how your church can give to CBF, please contact Rickey Letson, CBF Congregational Stewardship Officer at rletson@cbf.net or 678-230-8341.
