#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

The most meaningful gift is one that helps others. As the holidays fast approach, consider giving a tax-deductible donation instead of the traditional Christmas present.  An acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to the recipient.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and following the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season. It occurs as many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

To share with Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation please use the yellow “Donate” button at the top of this page. Be sure to use the remarks area to share the name and address of the loved one this gift honors.

Our sincerest appreciation for your contribution as the Foundation boldly moves forward seeking, developing and supporting excellence in Christian leadership for PC(USA).

The best seminarians, pastors and Commissioned Ruling Elders have been good mentors to others because they received good mentoring themselves.

“Saying we can no longer afford an educated clergy is like saying hospitals can no longer afford doctors, schools can no longer afford teachers or construction companies can no longer afford engineers,” wrote one denominational theological education leader recently.

This vital service for our clergy is what we are all about. We must answer the call to support those who lead our Church and to do this we need your help. Your donation will support Seminary Scholarships, Doctor of Ministry Scholarship Assistance and Lifelong Learning grants.

You may also choose to extend your influence beyond your lifetime by including in your will gifts of assets to the Foundation’s endowment fund. By contributing to the endowment, you will help ensure the future of churches and its leaders for decades to come. In an effort to provide supplemental financial support in perpetuity for the Foundation’s mission, gifts to the Foundation are managed by professional investment advisors under the direction and supervision of our dedicated and knowledgeable Board of Directors. Bequests are free of estate tax and can substantially reduce the amount of your assets claimed by the government. You can give needed support for OPSF by simply including the following words in your will: I give, devise and bequeath to the Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation, 7101 Mercy Road, Suite 216, Omaha, Nebraska 68106-2616 (insert amount being given here) to be used to support the ministry of Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation. It is recommended that a lawyer help in drafting or amending a will.

Please take time to explore the various areas of need and prayerfully consider how you can assist our clergy and churches today and in the future.

 Thank you for giving generously!
