The Word and Deed Annual Fund

Word and Deed

The Aquinas Institute Annual Fund

Why an Annual Fund?

Like most theological schools, our tuition does not cover our operating expenses and Aquinas relies on the generosity of friends who believe in our mission.  Your gift makes a meaningful difference to the entire Aquinas community and enables us to continue to offer our students a first-rate theological education. 

How do we use donations to the Word and Deed Annual Fund?

Your tax-deductible gift makes it possible for Aquinas to:

  • Provide scholarships and financial aid for future preachers, teachers, and Church leaders, many of whom would not be able to pursue a career in ministry without assistance
  • Attract and retain an outstanding faculty and staff
  • Create a joy-filled community of learners centered around the Word of God
  • Ensure that the Church has well-trained theologians and pastoral ministers to meet the needs of the people of God

Please consider a gift to the Annual Fund to ensure we can continue our tradition of academic excellence in the Dominican tradition.
