EDS’s donor recognition clubs encourage charitable giving among our constituents; recognize a donor's philanthropic investment; and create meaningful volunteer opportunities for donor involvement in the life of the EDS community. Of all of the aspects of development programs and fundraising, the annual giving program is the cornerstone and key to the School’s continued success.
The Society embodies a three-fold ministry, which is fundamental to theological education: Spirituality, Learning, and Stewardship. Together, these three aspects of a person or parish's commitment to EDS embody a Rule of Life by which society members seek to live out their vital role in providing new generations of leadership for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
