Parish Support of VTS

Seminaries of the Episcopal Church receive no financial support from the national church. The Episcopal Church, however, by Resolution at its General Convention in 1982 has asked all congregations to give “at least one percent of its net disposable budgeted income to one or more of the accredited seminaries” in support of theological education. 
Now, more than ever, parishes and missions have a critical stake in the quality of women and men who are serving as lay and ordained leaders of the Church.  
VTS continues to rely on parish giving, which amounts to close to 30% of our annual unrestricted support. This support is vital to allow VTS to meet its continued commitment to forming future church leaders, and to the educational needs of clergy and laity in congregations throughout the church. 
We are grateful for the parish support that comes to Virginia Theological Seminary and urge congregations to consider supporting VTS through a parish gift. 
Virginia Theological Seminary wants to engage with your parish. We do this in a variety of ways, including: 
Theological Education Sunday
Lifetime Theological Education
Contextual Ministry (parish internship) opportunities 
Placement services: job postings for parishes seeking new clergy and staff.
Your gifts enable the Seminary to prepare men and women to address timeless needs in an ever-changing world, without the oppressive burden of significant educational debt incurred while at Seminary. Your gifts also allow the Seminary to meet the needs of congregations and communities in the wider church at a time of great challenge and opportunity.

The Seminary depends upon the philanthropy of all our friends, and we are forever grateful for that support.
