Legacy Giving

Through careful estate planning, gifts made upon your death continue to support causes you hold dear in life. Legacy giving designated to Austin Seminary bears witness to your faith and helps to ensure the future of the church for generations to come.

Shaping your legacy through your estate can bring great joy and meaning to your life. It can also be an inspiration to others, demonstrating God’s call to invest in a future filled with the hope of Jesus Christ—a hope that is, was, and forever shall be. It connects you to the saints who have gone before you and the saints who will come after you—all believing in the church eternal and honoring her educated leadership.
