The East Cooper Baptist Legacy Fund was established by the Elders of East Cooper Baptist Church due to a recognition that Christians are called to be faithful stewards of all the gifts of God. We encourage both members and friends of the congregation to utilize the many ways available for giving to expand and enrich the work and mission of the East Cooper Baptist Church in helping broken people treasure Jesus.

The purpose of the Legacy Fund is to establish a means whereby material gifts (listed below) to East Cooper Baptist Church are being represented to the Glory of God.

  • money
  • stock
  • property

This may be encouraged and accomplished through outright transfers or bequests in wills or trusts. Gifts can be given at any time.

All funds are administered by the Baptist Foundation of South Carolina, in partnership with East Cooper Baptist Church. The Baptist Foundation of South Carolina serves SC Baptist churches, institutions, and other Christian ministries through investment and endowment services, as well as educating constituents about giving through estate and planned gifts. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees elected by the SC Baptist Convention.
