You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 2 Corinthians 9:11-12
Dear Friends of ADC,
We continue to be grateful to the donors who have given so generously to Acadia Divinity College. This support has enabled us to play a significant role in the preparation of men and women for leadership in our churches and in our communities.
This fiscal year, the cost of providing theological education at Acadia is $2.8 million, and is funded through student tuition ($800,000); investment income ($740,000); provincial funding through the Acadia University grant ($600,000); and other grants ($275,000). This leaves a balance of $385,000 which is our Annual Fund.
The Annual Fund is the lifeblood of the institution. Every year, your donations to the Annual Fund help us bridge the gap between what we are willing to ask our students pay in tuition and the real cost of operating the College. While support has been encouraging in other specific initiatives, we are experiencing a significant decline in the giving to our Annual Fund. As of December 31, 2016, we have received $172,300, and we need to raise the remaining $212,700 by March 31, 2017.
Together, let’s remove the financial barriers that prevent capable people from responding to God’s call. Please prayerfully make a gift to the Annual Fund. Your gift, regardless of the size, combined with those of other donors, directly impacts students - students who will serve as Christian leaders in our complex world.
Sincerely, in Christ,
Dr. Harry G. Gardner
President, Acadia Divinity College
