Wartburg's appealing main campus with state-of-the-art technology, geothermal heating and cooling and quality residences for students with or without families offers many naming opportunities. Naming opportunities perpetuate the memory of a loved one or bring honor to a special person. Naming gifts will be recognized with an appropriate notation for the area selected.


Wartburg's Endowment provides a solid foundation for the seminary's budget. Wartburg seeks to endow faculty positions in Bible; Youth, Culture and Mission; and Homiletics. Building the endowment offers many opportunities for perpetual support for core academic programs, scholarships, Wartburg's Centers and the International Student Program.


Planned gifts offer individuals the opportunity to significantly impact the seminary through a provision in one's will, by life insurance, life estate agreements or life income agreements. Planned gifts magnify their impact through investment and compounding while held by the donor.
