Sixty percent of the CP basic budget supports mission and ministry causes within the state. Forty percent is sent to the Southern Baptist Convention and divided between the International Mission Board, North American Mission Board; six seminaries and other national agencies.

Miscellaneous giving in the state, which includes the disaster relief funds and special offerings, was up 25 percent—$16.6 million in 2005 from $13.3 million in 2004.
