Why Giving Matters

Your gifts to the annual fund create scholarships, provide financial aid to every student with need, support teaching and research, and fund new initiatives.

The average Seminary scholarship covers 93 percent of tuition.

At Princeton Seminary, gifts from generous donors make this education affordable and accessible to students, without burdening them with excessive debt.

Every single gift makes an impact. Your gift makes it possible for students to follow God’s call.

Shivonne C. McKay ’15

Princeton Seminary fostered a deeper sense of community within me, depth in my intellectual and theological competence, and a spiritual evolution that has influenced my ability to lead, build, and equip disciples for the kingdom.

Chris McNabb ’16

I had worked in ministry in low-income communities prior to enrolling, and I had very little savings. The financial aid I received allowed me to study, improve my skills as a pastoral care provider, and develop my gifts for ministry.

John Boopalan ’11 ThM, ’16 PhD

As an international student coming from India, the doctoral fellowship I received enabled me to finish my PhD. I was able to invest my energies in research and writing—the very thing I came to Princeton to do.
