Generous Gifts Make a Difference!
DONOR DOLLARS AT WORK: Friends and alumni give to ensure seminarians are 100 percent equipped to lead in mission. Donor support made up 51 percent of the annual budget when combining outright gifts and endowment income. Charitable gifts cover everything from student scholarships and cross-cultural experiences to new course development and much more!
Luther Seminary awarded $2.6 million in financial aid for the 2012-13 academic year, covering approximately 43 percent of tuition. Students still incur significant education and living expenses. Scholarships and tuition support make it possible for students to say "Yes!" to God's call!
WHY ANNUAL GIFTS MATTER: It would take more than $186 million of unrestricted endowment to generate the annual spending power given by our friends and alumni each year.
