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 mission of the seminary to train God-called men and women who are engaging in Christian ministry. Through the Southwestern Fund, we are able to make strategic investments as we seek to improve the student experience on Seminary Hill and make theological education affordable for all whom God calls. Every dollar to the Fund is a dollar towards our students 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.
