Friends of the Seminary

Your support of Nazarene Theological Seminary counts! No matter the amount or size of your gift, your participation with us in graduate theological education makes a big difference to the entire NTS community, but especially our students. The quality graduate theological education that NTS endeavors to provide would not be possible without the support of our friends, the Church, foundations and corporations. You can be assured that your gift, whether $5, $5,000, or $25,000, will be a secure investment in preparing ministers to be faithful and effective ministers of the gospel.

In addition, gifts from our alumni and friends validate and confirm support of our mission. Foundations and corporations look carefully at the percentage of participation in giving when deciding whether to commit funds to the Seminary.  It sends the right signals to those outside our community when they can tangibly see that those who are a part of our community (alumni, friends and Churches) believe in the Seminary and in our shared mission.    

There are many ways to partner with NTS by making a tax-deductible donation, including donating cash, securities, insurance, setting up a charitable remainder trust, and/or making a deferred gift (remembering NTS as you do your estate planning).  Gifts can be restricted for a specific purpose (student scholarships, faculty chairs) or given to NTS as a part of our annual fund, which helps with scholarships, faculty, facilities, educational delivery methods and technology–everything that is necessary to carry out our mission to prepare women and men to be faithful and effective ministers of the Gospel.

Many corporations and businesses match their employees’ gifts to institutions of higher education.  To find out if your employer does this, check with your Human Resources Office, or contact the NTS Development Office at development@nts.edu or at 800.831.3011, ext. 5402.
