Donor Support

Generous Gifts Make a Difference!

DONOR DOLLARS AT WORK: Friends and alumni/ae give to ensure seminarians are 100 percent equipped to lead in mission. Donor support makes up 56 percent of Luther Seminary’s operating revenue when combining outright gifts and endowment income. Luther Seminary depends on faithful gifts from friends and alums to support future church leaders. These gifts fund everything from day-to-day operations to faculty resources to student scholarships and new technologies.

Luther Seminary awarded 418 scholarships during 2012-2013 which, along with financial aid, totaled $2.9 million. Financial aid awards to students increased 13 percent from last year.  On average, a student receives $6,937 in scholarships and grants from Luther Seminary.  This amount is $1,710 more than the previous year.  Scholarships and tuition support make it possible for students to say "Yes!" to God's call!
