Your Support Makes Giving Tuesday at CTSFW a Success

A pastoral and diakonal student (and also husband and wife) speak with other students in the campus plaza.

Thank you to everyone who shared our posts, prayed for our students and donated on Giving Tuesday! Contributions totaled nearly $10,000 before matching funds. Of that total, $5,970 was gifted as one-time donations, with another $3,360 to accrue over a year of monthly donations. This money will impact our students – your future servants – in any unforeseen circumstances and in every type of emergency situation. Thank you!

Those who signed up for monthly donations will receive an e-newsletter toward the end of each academic quarter, sharing information about the students who have been impacted by your generosity. We will keep you informed as to why the care fund was needed in each case. Expect updates in February, May, August and November.

Though Giving Tuesday is over for another year, the new care fund is now a permanent part of the Student Adoption Program. While regular student adoptions will remain as an option for giving (where donors are paired directly with a specific student), the care fund will continue as a more flexible option for our Financial Aid Office. They will be able to disburse money to students according to greatest need. For more information, or to donate, go to Email any questions to or call 260.452.2167.

“We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.”

2 Thessalonians 1:3

In Christ,

The Students, Faculty and Staff of CTSFW
