Giving Opportunities at Candler School of Theology

Candler School of Theology Infographic

Each new academic year reinvigorates the Candler community as the campus teems with energy from students and faculty returning from summer break, renewed by rest and relaxation, and enlivened by discoveries made during research trips, internships, and ministry work. With your annual support, we can build on this momentum to advance our mission of educating faithful and creative leaders for the church’s ministries throughout the world.

As Candler’s dean, I watch your gifts change lives every day. I am excited about the year ahead. I look forward to working together to advance these key priorities:

Funding student scholarships: 89 percent of Candler’s students receive scholarship support—with an average award covering 66 percent of tuition—helping our students graduate without the burden of excessive education debt.

Supporting program and curriculum enrichment: Programs and classes targeting special topics in theology and ministry help students address current challenges facing the church and society and open opportunities for international engagement.

Investing in faculty excellence: As longtime members of the faculty retire, we have an opportunity to continue Candler’s reputation of academic excellence by hiring promising new scholars.

Thank you for your partnership with Candler as we work together for the positive transformation of the church and the world. I invite you to choose the areas of giving that mean the most to you and renew your annual gift today.

Grace and peace,

Jan Love, Dean, Professor of Christianity and World Politics, Candler School of Theology
