Make a Transforming Difference

A stronger church means recruiting and educating a new generation of priests as well as developing programs for laity that lead to lay leadership. The Stronger Truer Sewanee campaign is building resources for both of these efforts. Highlights are new financial aid resources, funding for new programs of the Beecken Programs Center, and an ambitious capital project, moving the seminary back to its historic home on Georgia Avenue.

The School of Theology is about to embark on a new and exciting prospect—a move back to the heart of the central campus. Hear students, faculty, and staff articulate the many benefits and explain what it will mean for the School, the University, and The Episcopal Church as a whole.

Why give to the Sewanee Fund?

Your best gift to the campaign through the Sewanee Fund may be designated for Educating Tomorrow’s Church Leaders. While a gift at any level can help, here are some benchmarks to inform your giving:

  • Cover costs for an Education for Ministry student for one year with a gift of $500.
  • Send a high school student to the SUMMA debate camp or cover administrative costs with a gift of $1,000.
  • Underwrite a faculty member’s travel for professional development with a gift of $2,000.
  • Make a gift of $3,000 to foster community engagement as part of a seminarian’s educational experience.
  • Provide an incentive scholarship with a gift of $10,000.

If you are interested in a gift that goes beyond current-use dollars, you may want to give to endowment, a capital project, or make a planned gift. While gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated, naming opportunities begin at $50,000. Named endowments can be created to support scholarships, internships, faculty fellowships, endowed chairs, or programs and program-related activities that create opportunity, reinforce academic distinction, enhance the Sewanee experience, and educate tomorrow's church leaders.
