Reasons to Donate
We know there are a lot of good causes and needy charities out there. So why contribute to CTS? Because you’ll be giving to much, much more than our institution. You’ll be giving to support churches. You’ll be and preserving progressive theology here in America. And you’ll be helping to create the next generation of religious leaders to spread social justice and mercy throughout the world. The CTS Annual Fund is the opportunity for alumni, congregations, and friends to ensure the strength and ongoing vitality of CTS.
