You Answer the Call So We Can Answer Ours!
September 9 - 26, 2014
Answer the call and say YES to funding Student Scholarships & Support!
This year students will be calling Alums and Supporters every Tuesday and Thursday beginning Tuesday, September 9. The students will be asking for gifts that will fund student scholarships & support.
Approximately 90 percent of Phillips students receive scholarships every year to help off-set the cost of their seminary education. Without generous gifts from supporters like yourself, the students would leave seminary with debt that can hinder their focus on ministry. In the last three years, 64 percent of Masters of Divinity students graduated from Phillips with no debt (compared to 37 percent of all Association of Theological School graduates). This ability to graduate debt-free is due in large part to generous donors that support the annual Phillips Phonathon.
Phillips students are extremely grateful for all the generosity of supporters and donors. In May, graduate Gina Woods shared her gratitude:
I just want to say thank you for donating to the scholarships for Phillips Theological Seminary. This has been a great experience, and I am thankful for all that I've learned and how I've grown. My goal is to spread the way of Jesus to those who need it; thank you for making that possible.
If you have any questions about the Phonathon, please contact Malisa Pierce, Annual Fund Program Director.
