Our Funding and Endowment

About half of the approximately $16 million annual Seminary budget is provided by the SBC Cooperative Program. The support of the Cooperative Program is an annual allocation equal to the income of over $100 million of endowment. The Cooperative Program is the financial lifeline of the seminary.

Total Seminary endowment is about $40 million, including about $20 million in the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary endowment and about $20 million in the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Foundation endowment. For more information, contact the  Office of Institutional Advancement .
