"I never really considered the personal necessity of fulfilling the Great Commission until I came to Southeastern. Without the giving of thousands of people I have never met, I would no have had that opportunity. Thank you for supporting students like me."
Travis Allen - Junior, BACS
The Southeastern Fund provides support for the ongoing operational needs of the seminary. Its importance to the life and health of the seminary cannot be overstated. When alumni and friends support the Southeastern Fund, they provide President Akin the resources he needs to lead with confidence as he embraces new opportunities and steers us clear of unforeseen challenges.
While we must grow Southeastern’s endowment, we cannot neglect what God is doing now. Annual gifts totaling $250,000 provide the same purchasing power as a $5 million endowment.
To meet the needs for this fiscal year, Southeastern must raise $761,000 for the Southeastern Fund. As of March 31, donors have given just over $657,000 for the work of equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission. The fiscal year concludes on July 31, 2013. Because every dollar given to the Southeastern Fund is a dollar that we do not have to raise through tuition or student fees, it is a gift that benefits every student being prepared at Southeastern. Thank you for considering a gift to the Southeastern Fund; it is a gift that multiplies through the ministries of 3,000 students, and it is a gift with an impact we will celebrate forever.
