What Is The Northeastern Circle?
The Northeastern Circle is made up of over 189 alumni and friends of the Seminary who choose to give anywhere between $500 and $100,000 per year. Each gift helps students balance family, work, ministry, and study as they prepare for ministry with the support of caring faculty and staff. When you’re in the Circle, you receive exclusive benefits, invitations to special events, and opportunities to connect to the President, faculty, staff and students. Join the Circle to be a part of a generous group of people who all believe in Northeastern and the mission the Seminary inspires.
To become a Northeastern Circle partner, we ask that you make a gift of $500 or more each year and pray regularly for the Seminary, its students, faculty and staff. We have also started a new program that automatically enrolls students when they graduate! For each year after graduation, partnership can continue with giving that increases as listed below or at a faster rate if the donor so chooses.
First Year: Free
Second Year: $100
Third Year: $300
Fourth Year: $400
Fifth Year: $500
