AMBS Fund

Linsey Vandrik, AMBS receptionist, at the front desk in Waltner Hall“Where needed most” can mean a lot of things, but for AMBS, “where needed most” means supporting the financial, spiritual, and environmental sustainability of the seminary. We rely on our AMBS Fund to provide appropriate learning facilities, meaningful worship opportunities, and creation-friendly practices. AMBS Fund gifts are a yearly investment in educating students making sure they have access all services from the library to chapel services and composting.

AMBS Fund gifts directly impact students and enhance their freedom to learn. Currently the average financial aid and scholarships awarded is more than 50% of total tuition. Student debt has been reduced by more than half as of 2018.
