Annual Fund gifts are a form of daily bread for the seminary. The $720,000 for fiscal 2011/12 required to meet our operating budget enables the seminary to offer scholarships to over 80 percent of our students, to pay fair salaries and benefits, to maintain the building, and to keep the library collection up to date and in order. Gifts of any amount are always welcome for the Annual Fund.
A gift of at least $1,000 may be designated as a named Annual Fund scholarship. An Annual Fund scholarship is given to one or more students within an academic year (as distinct from an endowed scholarship from which a portion of the earnings is expended for scholarship, with the principal amount left invested to generate a scholarship from year to year).
If you would like to speak with a member of the stewardship staff about an Annual Fund gift, please contact, Malisa Pierce, Annual Fund Program Director.
