As Baylor University brings its “Give Light Campaign” to a close, Truett Seminary is eager to update and to thank those who have generously supported our school through the campaign.

With an initial directive to raise $50 million to contribute toward the University’s overall goal of $1.1 billion, Truett focused primarily on raising funds to increase student scholarship support. Additionally, Truett sought funding for endowed faculty positions as well as for research, programs, and capital projects.

The University recently announced the successful conclusion of the “Give Light Campaign,” having raised $1.5 billion over the course of the campaign. For Truett Seminary in particular, the following figures are noteworthy:

Total Amount Raised: $89 million
Total Endowment Amount Raised: $40 million
New Endowed Scholarships Created: 76
New Endowed Excellence Funds Created: 11
New Endowed Faculty Positions: 3

Truett Seminary is deeply grateful to all of the friends, churches, alumni, faculty, staff, and students who supported Truett over the course of the campaign. Because of their faithful gifts, Truett Seminary was able to exceed its campaign goal. Current and future ministry leaders have been and will continue to be impacted through their generous support.

“I continue to be amazed by and grateful for the groundswell of support our school experienced during the Give Light Campaign. As a result of the abundant gifts that Truett received, both large and small, our Seminary is now more strategically placed to offer high-quality theological education that is simultaneously affordable and accessible,” said Truett Dean Todd D. Still. “The love and dedication shown to Truett Seminary by so many both within and beyond the Baylor family is heartening and will enable our school to fulfill its much-needed mission of equipping God-called men and women for gospel ministry in and alongside Christ’s Church by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
