Support the Legacy Fund
Gifts given to Midwestern Seminary’s Legacy Fund make a direct impact on every student. In fact, every dollar given to Midwestern’s Legacy Fund is a dollar we do not have to charge in tuition. In a very real way, these unrestricted gifts defer the rising costs of tuition allowing our students to be deployed to do ministry without crippling debt. To designate your gift to Midwestern’s Legacy Fund, simply write “Legacy Fund” in the memo line of your check.

We ask that you would commit to praying for our institution. Whether it is daily, weekly, or monthly, we covet your prayers as we seek to train Pastors and Leaders for Gospel-centered ministry. Apart from God’s provision and your prayerful support, we know our striving would be in vain.
We ask that you tell others about our vision for the church and encourage them to stand with us through their prayers and financial support. By telling others about our vision you will help us create an invaluable network of support built upon faithful prayers and gracious giving.
We ask that you consider giving to Midwestern and Spurgeon College Legacy Fund.

Our aim is to train students for ministry, and your charitable contributions are a tangible way to aid in this endeavor. Your generosity is making a difference here at Midwestern and also in the lives of many students called to ministry.
