Use of Gifts and Fund Designations

Gifts to Emmaus Bible College help further our mission to educate and equip students to impact the world for Christ. Funds are used to support students through financial aid, educational programs, student life, facilities, and more.

When making a gift, donors may choose to support the Emmaus Fund (general use/greatest need) or designate their gift for a restricted fund including: Scholarship Fund (general student aid); Athletics; Music; Alumni Project; Facilities; general Faculty/Staff Fund; or Endowment. When giving via check, use the memo line or enclose a note to designate your gift to a specific fund. Undesignated funds will go to the Emmaus Fund or greatest need. To learn more about opportunities of what to support, visit Where to Give.
