Overview

Commemorative gifts are a thoughtful way to celebrate, congratulate, honor and remember a loved one while supporting a cause you believe in.  There are several options you may wish to choose as a memorial or a tribute:

  • Make an outright gift to a fund or campaign at any time.
  • Make a gift to endow an award, professorship or chair, facility, program and equipment. Specific minimum amounts are required to establish endowments.
  • Make a gift to endow a scholarship. These scholarships may be restricted to students in certain disciplines, sports, or other activities, or reserved for students with particular career objectives or financial need – the choice is up to the donor. Gifts to endowed scholarships are central to continue our commitment to provide a quality educational opportunity in our Christian environment. Scholarships may be tagged specifically for merit, minority students, disciplinary areas (such as science, religion, music), or to support participation in activities such as debate, athletics, Leadership Southwestern, or Discipleship Southwestern. A scholarship account may be endowed for a minimum of $5000.

In addition, the following specific giving opportunities are available:
