Why Give?


We invite you to invest in our educational mission

Since 1825, Lancaster Theological Seminary has consistently and successfully responded to the changing needs of students and the wider church community. In doing so, it has earned a reputation for offering an education characterized by exceptional teaching, a strong focus on Biblical and theological reflection, and practical formation experiences that develop outstanding leaders.

Invest in a Stronger, More Vital Seminary through the Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is the largest source of unrestricted money which enables the Seminary to close the gap between tuition revenues and the actual cost of educating a student.

Invest in Students through Scholarship Funds

The most dependable source of scholarships is an endowment generating annual earnings that can be directed to students.

 Invest in Facilities to Preserve, Enhance, and Make Fully-Accessible our Historic Campus

Renovations to Santee Chapel, Lark Hall, and Mayer Commons benefit students through improved quality of worship space, classrooms, and common areas. Investments in technology resources provide for current, innovative ways to reach students, both on- and off-campus.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match employee gifts to educational institutions and have matching gift applications. Please check with your Human Resources office to determine if your employer has such a program.
