Give Light Campaign Update

Since Baylor University launched Give Light, the $1.1 billion comprehensive philanthropic campaign, in 2014, supporters of Truett Seminary have given over $38.9 million toward the Seminary’s $50 million campaign goal. This generous outpouring of gifts supports a number of Truett needs and opportunities. Current priorities include:

  • Student Scholarships — endowed scholarship funds, expendable scholarships, and travel funds
  • Faculty Funding — endowed chairs and professorships, faculty-led programs, and ecumenical hires
  • The Truett Church Network — particularly, the development of a Spanish-speaking online certificate and continuing education programming
  • Extension Campus Support — both in Houston and in San Antonio

Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Truett Seminary has experienced outstanding generosity from friends. In the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2021, gifts to Truett totaled over $1.6 million. As the Seminary strives to reach and eclipse its $50 million campaign goal, the support of alumni, churches, and friends continues to be invaluable.
