Give toward People

Supporting people through student aid and more at Emmaus supports our mission to educate and equip learners to impact the world for Christ. We offer various opportunities for partnership, such as the Emmaus Fund, scholarships, and endowment. See below for details. 

Note: Emmaus Bible College does not designate donations to individual students or to individual faculty/staff/missionaries. Learn more at Use of Funds, and read below to see how you can support these groups of people.

“As an international student from India, I can attest to the significant impact of your donations toward making quality education accessible to students of all backgrounds."
– Stephen
Your Impact

Giving toward people has a direct impact on our students during their time at Emmaus, which continues after graduation as they impact the world for Christ. Join us in equipping faithful and effective servants of the Lord in their employment, ministries, and communities for His Glory.

We'd love you to hear that directly from them. Check out our 80th Anniversary Video, and click below for more impact stories. 

Opportunities for Partnership

Emmaus Fund (Greatest Need, Unrestricted)

Our greatest opportunity-need is funding unrestricted student grants and scholarships through the Emmaus Fund. Emmaus provides an excellent college education at a great value by awarding merit-based scholarships and need-based grants that reduce barriers for students who need resources above and beyond government aid. Our generous partners help us fund these grants and scholarships annually.

Supporting scholarships unlocks student potential and is a direct investment in the spread of the Gospel through our mission. The Emmaus Fund provides merit-based scholarships and need-based grants that reduce barriers for students to attend.

When you give to the Emmaus Fund, you enable us to continue to provide students with a high quality education that prepares them to impact the world for Christ wherever they live, work, and serve. The Emmaus Fund provides those who partner with us an opportunity to ensure that their gift addresses an area of greatest need: preserving excellence in academic programs; providing funds to students to make their education more affordable; maintaining a safe, attractive, and modern campus that meets our students’ needs; and much more.


Student Aid Fund (General Scholarships, Restricted)

Annual scholarships enable mission accomplishment and support students with need-based scholarships. These scholarships are for tuition only and significantly reduce barriers for students who cannot afford college without assistance. These scholarships are important because they are the most flexible in supporting our students. 


    Endowed Scholarship Funds

    Emmaus’s long-term strength is through purposeful endowment growth. When you support the Emmaus Endowment Funds, you can provide lasting student scholarship support with a gift of any amount. These funds allow the college to leverage many gifts, so large and small contributions all add up to long-term strength. 

    Choose from three Program Scholarship areas to provide endowed financial aid for students pursing these degree fields:

    • Missions & Ministry
    • Science & Technology
    • Professional

    Can't decide? The General Endowment Fund provides aid where needed most.

    Directed Scholarships

    Each year, we gladly distribute donor-funded incremental scholarships based on certain types of students, their courses of study, and their intended careers, among other criteria.

    We encourage donors who desire to help students in this more directed way to consider giving toward the following existing funds:

    • Professional Programs
    • STEM
    • Ministry/Missions
    • Legacy Bible Scholarship
    • Health Science Scholarship (Pre-Professional Health and Counseling Psychology)


    Marketing for Enrollment

    Help us reach more people by recruiting more students. As we have increased the number of full-time enrollment counselors from 3 to 5, we need additional resources for our marketing budget to support these positions.


    Faculty/Staff Fund

    Although Emmaus does not direct support to designated individuals, you can support those working at the college to carry out our mission by giving to the general Faculty/Staff Fund.

    “The Lord has used Emmaus monumentally to transform me and refine me for His service. It is like drinking from a running faucet! I know that Emmaus would not be able to serve as well as they do it wasn’t for the work that the Lord has done in you to help us. Thank you so much!”
    – Talulah
