Giving: Myths vs. Facts
Since the Seminary provides 100% tuition scholarships to master's level students, it must have all the money it needs.
While Louisville Seminary is blessed with an endowment, it supports only a portion of the tuition scholarships for our students. Nearly 37% of scholarship dollars awarded each year are possible because of gifts from donors like you. When you give to Louisville Seminary, you are directly supporting future faith leaders and helping them avoid crippling student debt in their life of ministry.
I can only give a small amount, and that won't make a difference.
Last year, 275 donors gave up to $100 or less to the Seminary, resulting in more than $18,000 raised. Helping to make Louisville Seminary better for the future is a collaborative effort. Gifts of all sizes make a difference.
The Seminary doesn't need me alums and churches support it.
Because we are a specialized institution, we have approximately 2,400 living alums throughout the U.S. and the globe. We are proud that our alums represent the largest group of donors to the Seminary, but their financial resources are generally more limited as they are devoted to a life of service and ministry. Many congregations continue to support the Seminary, but those numbers and dollars have diminished over the years. We depend on you to support our students and our mission.
