With expertise across the spectrum from the classical to the practical fields, Candler faculty members strive to enhance the quality of religious and public life. Your gift will create endowed professorships to recruit and support the best faculty, scholars who strengthen Candler's commitment to serve Christ by educating faithful and creative leaders for the church's ministries in the world.
Endowed gifts to Candler ensure support for today and far into the future. Endowed professorship gifts are guaranteed through named endowment funds, and a major portion of the interest income provides financial support as outlined in the gift agreement. The remainder of the interest income is returned to the fund's corpus to protect against inflation and permit the endowment to grow over time. In this way, endowed gifts have far greater earning power: A one-time gift lasts forever.
