Donors & Friends
Institutional Advancement News
At Oblate School of Theology, we recognize that our benefactors make everything on this campus possible: the buildings and grounds, degree and certificate programs, continuing education programs and more. All exist because of the generosity of our donors.
In 2008, OST launched the Building on Faith Campaign. The campaign reflects the School’s vision of enhancing its educational service to students, increasing its capacity to serve the Catholic community and furthering our mission to serve and evangelize the poor. Our goal is to grow from a local institution to regional and national prominence in theological education.
Less than $5.1 million remains to be raised to reach our $30 million Building on Faith campaign goal! The new construction phase of the campaign is completed. The Whitley Theological Center and our new residential facility are built, dedicated and already in use. The WTC contains an auditorium, three large and two smaller classrooms, a student commons and office space. The guest house provides accommodations for visiting professors, short-term guests of the School and out-town students. Both facilities are much-needed additions to our campus.
The buildings may be finished, but the campaign is not, as much remains to be done. This includes renovating the historic Main Building, and funding programming until returns on endowments can fully support those programs.
If you have made a gift to the Building on Faith campaign, thank you. If you haven’t, we hope you will consider making a gift or pledge today. If you made a gift but would like to do more, please contact me. With everyone’s help, we can successfully complete the campaign. Every gift is vitally important and deeply appreciated.
