Most of the scholarship endowment funds are restricted to students majoring in some aspect of ministry.
These initial endowments were approximately $100,000 and there have been very few additions.
These gifts are sent directly to the schools for the benefit of the students who are chosen to assist with their tuition.
The gifts you give today will make a difference for the pastors and ministry leaders of tomorrow!

Thank you letter from an Indiana Pastor Blessed by the Indiana Baptist Memorial Scholarship Fund:
It is with great joy and the sincerest gratitude that I am writing this letter to you today!
As you well know, I have received financial support from this foundation for the last 3 years of
my school career. It brings me great pleasure to finally share with you that my school journey is
completed. Praise God for seeing me through my school journey.
Let me share what God has done. I recently have graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in
Biblical Studies from the Moody Bible Institute. This degree puts me in a position to continue
serving God in whatever capacity He may desire for my life. Currently I am serving as the pastor
of a local Southern Baptist Church in Portage Indiana, Portage Missionary Baptist Church. It is
my hope to always serve and stand with the Southern Baptist Convention. I believe that God
has used and will use Southern Baptist churches in mighty ways as long as they stay committed
to the Great Commission and the Cooperative Program.
With that being said, I want to let this foundation know that God used this entity in a
significant way while I was attending Moody Bible Institute. If I did not have the financial
backing of this foundation, I am not sure how funding for school would have been provided.
Due to your faithful and generous giving, I am able to graduate school debt free and am able to
serve the local church as pastor without tremendous financial burdens. This is a blessing I
never would have thought possible at the beginning of my school career.
So in short, thank you Indiana Baptist Foundation for believing in students like me.
Furthermore, thank you for believing that God can use those students to further His kingdom.
