Other Giving Opportunities

Southern is a growing institution with numerous projects, initiatives, and opportunities for investment.

Annual Fund
All unrestricted gifts are directed toward the Annual Fund to be used where they are needed most. This type of giving is critical to keep the cost of tuition affordable to all our students.

Endowed Faculty Chair
Establishing or completing a previously established endowed faculty chair ensures Southern will be able to recruit and retain a world-class faculty.

Endowed Ministry or Missions Center
Establishing an endowed Ministry or Missions Center allows Southern students to gain valuable ministry experience in the local church and mission fields of the world.

 

Endowed Student Scholarship
Establishing a student scholarship in honor of a loved one is a lasting way to honor their memory and benefit specific students as they prepare for gospel ministry.

Major Gifts
Southern has been blessed with an exceptional campus and facilities. Capital gifts provide financial resources to expand, enhance, and repurpose facilities for more effective use.

For many students, the decision to train for ministry is a decision to leave behind financial security. This is a necessary sacrifice as they seek to fulfill God’s call on their lives. Many years ago, a group of people came alongside Seminary with the goal of supporting its mission and students. These people are known as the Southern Seminary Foundation. You can find out more about Southern Seminary and the Foundation by clicking HERE.

Leadership Briefing

The Leadership Briefing luncheons provide the opportunity for business leaders from around the city to gather and hear from distinguished speakers such as Hugh Hewitt, R. Albert Mohler Jr., and others on leadership principles. Our next Leadership Briefing will be held on November 3rd, featuring Scott Pruitt, Attorney General for Oklahoma.
