As can be seen from the General Fund table below, we still need to make up a nearly $53,000 deficit accumulated during the first four months of the 2014-15 fiscal year. If 100 concerned supporters provided a gift of $530 each, that deficit could be eliminated. In the next few weeks, we will begin our annual year-end outreach. Watch your mail for a progress letter from President Pipa, and prayerfully consider what you might do to help sustain GPTS through the end of 2014.

For your special donation of $200 or more before the end of this year, GPTS would be pleased to send you a complimentary copy of Dr. Ryan M. McGraw’s new book, The Foundation of Communion with God: The Trinitarian Piety of John Owen. (Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.)
Dr. McGraw, an adjunct professor at GPTS who will be joining the faculty full-time in 2015 teaching systematic theology, is a recognized expert on the Puritan theologian John Owen.
Click on this link and then either select the orange DONATE TO YOUR CHARITY box to make a donation or, better yet, click on the black FUNDRAISE FOR YOUR CHARITY box to start your own peer-to-peer fund-raising campaign on behalf of GPTS. Once you have created your campaign, click on the "Manage Team" tab on your fund-raiser campaign page, then on the "Invite Team Members" box to create an e-mail message notifying your contacts about your fund-raising efforts on behalf of Greenville Seminary. In turn, they will have the opportunity to give or start a campaign of their own.
As you reach out, or even if you do not participate in this Crowdrise.com effort, we would appreciate knowing about your contacts. We are asking you to provide the names of five prospective donors from among your friends and acquaintances. To make your pledge and referrals, please fill out and submit the form here.
Remember, gifts to GPTS are tax-deductible and may include cash, securities, property or a variety of planned giving instruments. (The tax deduction is reduced by the fair market value of any premium received in return for a donation.) See here for information about planning your last will and testament with the Kingdom of God in mind.
Whether or not you can contribute financially, here is another way you can help the seminary: Spread the Word! Do you know someone that would be interested in learning more about our organization or supporting us? If so, share a link to this newsletter.
