When you make a gift to Payne’s endowment fund, you are truly making a gift with a future! Your endowment gifts guarantee that financial support will remain readily available for the future needs of the seminary and its students.
Gifts to Payne Theological Seminary’s endowment are permanently invested to supply a steady, annual source of funds for the purposes agreed upon by the donor and the seminary.
Endowment gifts are most often established through estate bequests or other planned gifts.
Many donors choose to create an endowed fund or scholarship - which can be named to honor the donor or a loved one - to commemorate a family legacy or an important individual. Such gifts tie together past, present and future: they preserve the memory of important individuals and inspire future generations through lasting financial support for Payne’s educational mission.
