We are very concerned about the cost to students for higher education. The cost of operating Biblical Life Institute is far more than what students are asked to pay for tuition, room and board, and fees. This is only possible due to the generous donations from alumni and friends of the school. As God leads, please consider supporting BLI with your financial giving.
In addition to giving toward the general operating budget, Biblical Life Institute has four established endowments to which you can donate. The endowments are:
General Endowment. The General Endowment provides for the general financial support, maintenance, and expansion of BLI as a school of theology for the ministerial and professional preparation of people of all races and genders within the framework of the Wesleyan Arminian interpretation of the Christian faith. This endowment will support the institutional needs for addressing the requirements of the PA Department of Education and for supporting the vision for accreditation.
Library/Chapel Endowment Fund. This endowment was established to provide financial resources for the academic expansion of the library, library staff, aid in the development of building plans for the growing library needs, meet the expectations of accreditation, advance the research opportunities of the faculty, staff, and administrators, and underwrite special chapel musical, theological, and philosophical emphases relevant to full-time Christian work.
Dr. Henry Shilling Theology Endowment Fund. This endowment was established to create a fiscal resource for increasing faculty and administrators’ salary packages, meeting accreditation expectations, advancing the research opportunities of the faculty, staff, and administrators, and perpetually paying tribute to this institution’s founder and first president, Dr. Henry Shilling.
Student Scholarship Endowment Fund. The purpose of this endowment is to create resources for financial aid to qualifying students and help enlarge student enrollment to meet accreditation requirements.
If you would like to initiate a new endowment or designate a gift in a different category, please contact our business director Dan Warner at 724-295-2464.
