Giving

Giving Information

Giving is an act of Worship that, as believers, we are called to share in. This act of Worship includes our time, talents and financial resources. Sharing the resources that God has blessed us with is a very important part of Worship to our Lord who has given us all that we have.

The daily operations and ministries of First Baptist Richardson depend upon your faithful gifts. Please join us in giving, as an act of Worship to The Lord’s work here.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
2 Corinthians 9:7

IRA Giving – Remember if you are 70 ½ or older you can take advantage of a charitable tax break for IRA owners on contributions up to $100,000 annually. These transfers can count as a part of your required minimum distribution.

Please consult your tax preparer or broker for more details on all charitable giving options.

The Great Commission Fund

The Great Commission Fund is an integral part of our annual mission budget. These funds support many different aspects of our mission budget for the year--things like our institutional and direct mission partners, events, trips that we do throughout the year and our partnerships with Richardson ISD and The University of Texas at Dallas Baptist Student Ministry. Because this is a fund and not an offering, you can give to the GCF all year long. Each year, funds are collected for the following year. November and December are our most significant times of giving to this fund, so please do not miss this opportunity to give to the mission of our church as we seek to bring healing and wholeness to our community and beyond.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
