After losing their first spouses, Pat and Shelly were recently married. They had both been dedicated volunteers and consistent supporters of Dallas Theological Seminary for many years. They wanted to make certain the programs they supported continued even after they were gone.
Pat: We appreciated the work of Dallas Seminary. We hoped to show our commitment and support by making a gift that would last well into the future.
Shelly: A staff member at Dallas Seminary Foundation asked us to consider making a gift to the scholarship endowment. We learned that the endowment was a fund that served as a permanent source of income for the organization's projects.
Pat: : I liked that giving to the endowment would help DTS continue teaching leaders in its degree programs on an ongoing basis.
Shelly: I also felt that the gift would provide a legacy for me and Pat. We were both thrilled that our gift would keep on giving to a cause we love.
The support of donors like Pat and Shelly makes it possible for more students who could not otherwise afford it, to attend DTS. When you make an gift to the scholarship endowment, your gift is maintained in perpetuity and creates a lasting, meaningful difference. Please contact us to learn how to create your legacy through an endowment gift.
