The story of our ministry
In 1982, three Christian financial experts came together with a vision for a new type of charitable foundation – one that would simplify the process of giving, multiply the results, and glorify the Lord.
From a small office in Atlanta, Ga., best-selling author and entrepreneur Larry Burkett (pictured left), leading financial advisor Ron Blue, and tax attorney Terry Parker began to introduce innovative, tax-wise solutions for transferring wealth to God's Kingdom.
Through their efforts, National Christian Foundation was born.
We went on to introduce one of the first Christian-focused donor-advised funds – what we now call the Giving Fund. We also developed a special expertise in asset-based giving – the tax-smart way to donate non-cash assets such as real estate and business interests.
Over the past three decades, we've become the nation's largest provider of donor-advised funds focused primarily on Christian givers. With our home office in Atlanta and affiliates across the country, we've assembled a team of over 200 of the brightest, most passionate experts in charitable giving. And while we're one of the largest non-profits in the U.S., you'll discover that we're still a family, united in Christ, all personally committed to generosity.
Today, we help thousands of generous believers, just like you, to reach their highest potential in giving. The result? More impact for the Kingdom, more joy for you, and ultimately, more glory for God.
