#GivingTuesday 2019

Click here to donate to St. Vladimir's Seminary on #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019!

The Challenge

Did you know YOU are essential in training and educating future bishops, priests, monastics, and lay leaders for your parish and the wider Church? Saint Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVOTS) is not funded by any church institution or by the government, so we rely on the generosity of donors each year to raise funds to operate the Seminary and train seminarians. It takes approximately $62,775 to train one seminarian each year—and SVOTS pays around 82% of that cost itself to make outstanding seminary education and formation available to all who are called to serve Christ and his Church. That’s where you come in! Seminarians and their families have left careers, homes, and more to follow Christ to Seminary. Will you take the next step to make sure their education is paid for? This December 3 on Giving Tuesday, #Give2StVlads! Help us raise the cost to educate one seminarian this year: $62,775. And when you give, you’ll be giving twice! The Seminary is tithing 10% of whatever we raise on Giving Tuesday our non-profit partner for 2019, the Northern Uganda Self-Sufficiency Project—spearheaded by Priest Simon Menya, a recent graduate of SVOTS—to benefit Orthodox faithful in Uganda
