These grants, scholarships, and funds have been made possible by the generous giving of Presbyterians. In that same spirit, contributions are needed to continue grant funding. The most immediate way to contribute is through an individual, group, or congregational donation to the Synod for a specified purpose. Individuals can also help through bequests from their estates, by making it a beneficiary of their life insurance, or with gifts of securities, real estate, or annuities.
