CTS hosted its second annual Day of Giving on February 17, 2022, and its community generously responded by investing in the seminary and its mission. On that day, members of the community gathered online and in person around CTS’s history, values, and vision, to affirm and support the vital work of its mission to form disciples of Jesus Christ for church and community leadership to serve God’s transforming of the world.
The 2022 Day of Giving was the second in what is now an annual tradition, building on the success of last year’s inaugural event and the support of CTS alumni and friends far and wide. This year CTS secured 127 individual gifts, including 31 first time gifts, equaling $28,747. This represents a 53% increase in donors over last year’s inaugural event.
Throughout the day, CTS staff, faculty, alumni, friends, and students gathered in person and online to support the seminary. For much of the afternoon, members of the community gathered in the Common Room for fellowship and community building around their shared gratitude for CTS. Students enjoyed an opportunity to connect with members of the Alumni Board and reached out to benefactors to express gratitude for their financial support.
Kristin Champa, Vice President for Advancement, said that the outpouring of support from so many is reflective of “a vibrant culture of gratitude and generosity around CTS’s mission and enthusiasm for its future.” “We are incredibly grateful for the gifts received on our Day of Giving and the investment, by so many, in CTS as an academic learning community that gives witness to God’s liberative, restorative, and life-affirming message.”
