You make our mission possible!

When you make your gift to Claremont School of Theology, you are part of the vanguard of progressive seminary education. 

Our scholars matriculate at Claremont School of Theology with the promise that they will learn from premier faculty, and that they will receive the most generous scholarship support possible.

Your giving makes it possible for us to keep our commitments to our scholars, and ensures that they will graduate optimally positioned to be agents of positive change and healing in churches, non-profit organizations, and communities across the world.
