Financial Support

ESR occupies a unique place at the intersection of education, religion, and Christian leadership. We are a place where students and teachers learn together, and challenge one another to grow intellectually. We provide space for Friends and those from other faith traditions who share our inclusive theology to nurture the life of the Spirit. And we develop a new generation of leaders who can shape ministry so that it remains vital and relevant.

These qualities are the product of a vision of Spirit-led education, founded on Quaker principles. Financial support for ESR helps us:

  • Make seminary education accessible to all who are led to ministry
  • Provide stability for operations that comprise our annual budget
  • Continue to serve a broad spectrum of Friends, through scholarship, events and programs
  • Fund growth and programs in key areas: Christian spirituality, cross cultural ministry, pastoral care and counseling, pastoral ministry, peace studies, and technology and ministry.

We invite those who share this vision to support our work through:

  • Major gifts that support our key initiatives
  • Planned giving, which offers tax benefits to donors
  • Annual Fund online giving
