Online Giving

You’ll find donating online quick and easy, whether you choose a one-time or recurring gift. Your investment in theological education will have immediate impact.


The Columbus Foundation's 26-hour Big Give event begins at 10 a.m. Oct. 10. During that time, if you visit the Columbus Foundation website and give to MTSO during the designated hours, your gift will be amplified through a bonus pool. In other words, MTSO will receive more than you give. In each of two previous Big Give events, the bonus pool increased every gift to MTSO by more than 10 percent.

To make a qualifying Big Give gift, you must give to MTSO through the Columbus Foundation. It's easy and secure. Just follow these steps:

  1. Visit between 10 a.m. Oct. 10 and noon Oct. 11, and click on the Big Give banner. 
  2. Search the foundation's Giving Store for MTSO.
  3. Make a gift of at least $20 to MTSO using a major credit card. Columbus Foundation donors also can make a qualifying grant (minimum of $100) through their Donor Advised Fund or Supporting Foundation.

All Big Give donations will go to MTSO's annual fund. On behalf of our students, thank you for helping us capitalize on this unique fundraising opportunity.

Giving online to MTSO

Most online donors choose to give to one of two funds. A gift to our Seminary Scholarship Fund will enhance our ability to offer financial assistance to promising students. Methesco’s Greatest Needs is our annual fund. This ensures your gift will be used where it can best benefit MTSO’s mission at this time.

Looking to give via mail or phone? Here are those options.

Your online gift will be processed through Blackbaud Online Express. If you have questions about online giving or wish to cancel a recurring gift, contact Claudine Leary, director of development, at or 740-362-3323.

On behalf of our current and future students – and all those whose lives they will enrich – thank you.
