Thank you for your willingness to support Beeson Divinity School! Our roots are firmly planted as we see our third decade in plain view. We reflect on the gracious foundation laid by Ralph Waldo Beeson, which secured the vitality of our institution and afforded Beeson Divinity School the ability to seek and establish excellence in all areas of community and academics. God's call for Beeson and those who support her mission is to shore up resources for the next years. We pray for such provision so we can continue to offer scholarship assistance, endow faculty and staff resources, and for an interdenominational body of dedicated students who, above all else, are men and women of God. Your giving to Beeson is an answer to these prayers. May God bless you as He blesses this divinity school through your support.

Charles T. Carter Endowed Baptist Chair of Divinity
The charter of Beeson Divinity School specified that funds must be allocated to endow Presbyterian, Methodist and Anglican faculty chairs. It is our desire to see a Baptist chair fully endowed alongside these existing chairs. This chair, named in honor of Dr. Charles Carter, has reached an endowment level strong enough to name Dr. Robert Smith, Jr. as its first incumbent. The chair is yet to be fully endowed, and we continue to invite contributions.
The Timothy George Scholarship for Excellence
This new scholarship was established early in 2016. Its purpose is to honor our founding dean, Timothy George, and to shore up significant resources for fully funded tuitions available to the next generation of excellent candidates for Christian leadership.
Student Scholarship Fund
All full time Beeson Divinity School students receive scholarship assistance for 40–95% of their tuition costs. Contributions to this fund go directly towards sustaining and increasing our ability to keep Beeson affordable and attractive to potential and current students.
Gary and Alta Faye Fenton Student Scholarship
The Gary and Alta Faye Fenton Student Scholarship was established to both honor the ministry of Dr. and Mrs. Fenton, who served at Dawson Memorial Baptist Church in Homewood for 25 years, and to provide greater financial resources to future students so they may receive a master of divinity from Beeson Divinity School and graduate debt free.
Beeson Divinity School Fund
A gift to the Beeson Divinity School Fund supports our operating expenses including faculty development, the Lay Academy of Theology, preservation of Hodges Chapel, and our annual lecture series.
