Tuition covers approximately 80 percent of education-related costs. This kind of financial grace, 20 percent, means students are able to attend each year who would otherwise miss out on a Christian education and the Southern experience.
Southern’s mission statement includes a call to pursue “truth, wholeness, and a life of service.” Annual gifts does just that by supporting critical programs that put those principles into practice. Southern fund is the bedrock of the university’s operations and general budget. Increased contributions to this fund along with affinity giving raise money for academic schools and departments, as well as support areas such as our award-winning Christian Service program. Your contributions help those who are training to serve others!
By making it easier for students to seek “truth, wholeness, and a life of service,” your gift to Southern will help transform tomorrow.
“Because the Annual Fund helps offset tuition, I was able to spend more time focusing on friendships than finances. I am extremely grateful to the donors who give each year so that I could afford to get a college degree in a Christian environment.” – Luke Evans, '13
We value our donors and Southern community. Keeping you updated on the campaign is important as we share our visions.
