Support a generation of leaders
Our endowment forms a financial foundation which supports everything that goes on at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. AMBS relies on endowment earnings for annual revenue.
In order to continue serving the church and educating Christian leaders, we must continue to add to our endowment to carry our mission into a secure future without raising tuition for our students.
Be a part of the present and future of AMBS
Approximately 25% of our annual revenue comes from endowment investment interest. Adding to this foundation will allow AMBS to fulfill its mission in a secure future.
Endowment for a sustainable future
Gifts given to the general endowment will help to sustain AMBS long after you have made your final annual Leadership Education Fund gift. By giving a planned gift to a non-scholarship endowment, a donor can continue to support the sustainability of AMBS for generations.
