Your Gifts Matter!
Alumni help us make an EMS education possible for people from a variety of traditions and backgrounds.
The cost of tuition covers only about 80 percent of the cost of a student’s year at EMS. Please consider how you might empower future leaders of integrity by making a gift to:
- the EMS Second Century (Annual) Fund
- the Christmas Fund Drive when a student calls or writes
- or by considering the opportunity to triple your gift by giving through the Virginia Tax Credit Fund program
We also invite you to consider EMS in your planning giving program. Bequests from donors are a cornerstone of EMS financial aid.
