Becoming a Partner is a way to become involved in and support the mission of Austin Seminary. Partners make a three-year commitment to the Seminary's Annual Fund, corresponding to the three-year timeline of study Austin Seminary students follow. Partner-level gifts allow the Seminary to budget adequately in the present and to make plans for the future. Partners are recognized in the Annual Report as top Annual Fund donors, receive up-to-date news of the Seminary, and are invited to special events.
Many people become Partners after attending one of the Seminary's Partnership Luncheons. These complimentary luncheons raise awareness of and support for the mission of Austin Seminary. They last only one hour, beginning promptly at noon. The program includes a presentation by President Ted Wardlaw on a vision of the future of Austin Seminary, remarks by others sharing their reflections on Seminary life, and an invitation to support the Seminary’s work.
