Q. Why should I consider financial support for Grace Bible College?
A. Since it’s beginning as Milwaukee Bible Institute in 1939, Grace Bible College has provided a sound, biblically based education for thousands of students. The fully accredited education GBC offers prepares students for a wide variety of vocations in business, human services, early childhood, elementary and secondary education, pastoral ministry, cross-cultural missions, youth ministry and music ministry leadership.
Student tuition rate and fees represent 65% of the total budget – the rest is provided through gift income. Your financial assistance allows us to keep our tuition one of the lowest in the Midwest and makes a GBC education available to more students.
Q. What size gift will make a difference?
A. A gift of any size is greatly appreciated and helps us meet the goal of providing and affordable college education for every student. GBC has scores of faithful monthly donors and hundreds of additional donors who give on a regular basis. While GBC enjoys a broad base of support, there’s always room for more friends.
Q. What is the Grace Scholars Fund and how will my gift help?
A. The Grace Scholars Fund is comprised of a group of institutional scholarships awarded to deserving students each year. This year 125 GBC students received awards ranging from $500 to $3,800. In total, GBC will provide $121,500 in scholarships to students.
