Dear MTS Family,
At the beginning of December, I reached out with the news that the estate of Dr. Clinton Buck, Professor Emeritus of MTS, had offered a $50,000 matching grant. Within two weeks, our generous supporters met that match. Inspired by your generosity, an anonymous family offered another $50,000 match for all donations received in the final two weeks of December. I am so pleased and grateful to share the news that we have surpassed this matching pledge as well!

In the month of December, these matching pledges and the gifts from our generous supporters have surpassed a total of $230,000, and gifts by mail are still arriving!

We are so grateful to God for this blessing, and we continue to be amazed by the support offered to us by our community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and people of faith across our region. We offer our profound thanks and wish all of you a Happy New Year!

With deepest gratitude and prayerful blessings,

Rev. Dr. Jody Hill
Memphis Theological Seminary
