In every sense of the term, Southwestern ministry partners are special friends to our students and help facilitate their theological education. Your parternership as a prayer partner and donor helps Southwestern fulfill the mission to equip men and women with a strong theological foundation to fulfill God's calling on their lives. Below are several partnership opportunities of your consideration.

Southwestern Fund: The Southwestern Fund supports the operating budget and subsidizes tuition, housing, and services. Southwestern Fund serves as the most effective way to help students. Every dollar to the annual fund is a dollar towards our student’s overall education costs thereby keeping tuition as low as possible.

Scholarships: Gifts to named and general scholarships provide much needed assistance to students who otherwise likely would not be able to complete their education. The Cooperative Program covers a portion of tuition for students who are members of Southern Baptist churches, but students are responsible for the remainder. Scholarships free students from financial burdens so they can faithfully train for God’s calling on their lives and graduate with little to no debt.

Endowment Fund: Endowments support the future needs of Southwestern, including operating budget, academic programs, scholarships, professorships and academic chairs.  An endowment is a principle gift which continually distributes annual income to the seminary indefinitely and is a great way to maximize resources and stewardship.

Student Housing and Capital Needs: This covers expenses in the design, construction and annual operation of our educational facilities and student housing.

Amazon Smile: Giving can be as simple as making your regular Amazon purchases. Simply shop at, and search and choose Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as the charitable organization. Eligible purchases will generate 0.5% of the purchase price to the seminary. Learn more at the website above.

DID YOU KNOW: The average annual gift to the Southwestern Fund is $425, or just $35/month? Become a ministry partner today.
