Have you longed to do something that would have a lasting impact, but felt you couldn’t do enough to make a difference? Every gift to Ashland Seminary makes a difference. For over 100 years people of generosity have pooled their resources in support of the lasting work of the seminary to strengthen the Church.
This fund supports the seminary by providing much-needed unrestricted dollars the president can use to address the many expenses incurred annually. Upgrades to student housing, improvements to technology, meeting ever-changing commuter student needs – these are just a few of the areas your gifts to the ATS Fund will make a difference.
Ashland provides a high-quality, multi-faceted education to individuals who will pursue ministry in the church and the world. Beyond the Master of Divinity, Master of Arts and Doctor of Ministry degrees, Ashland offers additional non-degree programs including Pastors of Excellence
The ATS Fund provides the underlying financial support to the seminary as a whole, thereby supporting every offering of the institution. Your support of the ATS Fund is your support of all that Ashland Theological Seminary offers, and the work that our graduates do when they continue on from the Ashland campuses in Detroit, Cleveland, Columbus and Ashland.
Students at Ashland Theological Seminary are making a significant investment in training for the ministry to which they have been called. They, and their families, make personal sacrifices, work part time or full time jobs, and acquire loan assistance to help them meet their financial obligations. Every dollar that is raised for scholarships is carefully given to a student showing financial need and/or academic excellence. Many of these students could not complete their studies if not for the generosity of those who give to the scholarship resources of the Seminary.
Participate in the significant transformation students experience during their time at Ashland Theological Seminary by directing your donation to ATS Scholarship Support.
The Church has long been a source of support and encouragement for Ashland. Providing scholarship support to students, honoring pastoral leadership through endowed scholarships, and offering pastoral ministry students places to hone their skills and learn first-hand the joys and challenges of pastoral leadership, the Church has been a powerful partner to the seminary from the start.
Investment in the future leadership of the Church is a wise use of funds, providing an eternal return on investment. Ashland offers students a high-quality, multi-faceted education under the direction of professors from many denominational perspectives. This multi-denominational input provides a richer environment that enriches students’ educational experiences at ATS.
Churches have long-supported the work of ATS, particularly through annual and scholarship support. A substantial portion of scholarship support provided to students each year is the result of church-endowed scholarship funds. A named endowment that will support those training for church leadership long into the future is a powerful way to honor beloved church leaders.
