Ways to Support Divinity

Benton

Thank you for your interest in supporting Vanderbilt Divinity School and Graduate Department of Religion. Your gift enables our students to discover the possibilities of theological education and embrace prophetic lives of ministry and service. 

Types of Gifts

When you make a gift to the Divinity School, you have tremendous flexibility in choosing how to make your gift and in determining how the funds will be used.

  • Unrestricted gifts to the Divinity School give the dean flexibility in allocating funds to meet the greatest need - student scholarships. A gift designated as unrestricted is used to fund theological education at Vanderbilt by providing financial aid for our students.
  • Restricted gifts to the Divinity School are gifts that are directed/ designated to a specific program, scholarship fund, or a department chair. A designated gift allows the donor to enjoy the satisfaction of supporting a program that is personally meaningful to them and their relationship with the Divinity School.

Schola Prophetarum

Our Schola Prophetarum  giving society recognizes donors who make gifts of $2,500 or more annually to the Divinity School.
