“Whatever professions today’s Asbury students choose to go into, they’re being trained as leaders. I anticipate that these students will go and make a difference in the world.”

Dr. Walter Shaw ’63
Ignited Campaign Steering Committee

The need for Christian leaders in our world has never been more apparent. The stakes are high. Every day there are more young people who need to be educated, more sick people who need healing, more people with no hope who need to see and hear redemptive stories being told with skill and effectiveness. An Asbury education can accomplish these things.

We have reached another pivotal point in our history with the launch of Ignited: The Campaign for Asbury University. With the unanimous consent of our trustees, the initiatives we have identified will blaze a new path for Christian higher education, where students experience the integration of faith and learning in fresh new ways.

Charitable Bequest

Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is a life income gift that can provide future philanthropic support for Asbury University, current income for you or others, and a meaningful income tax deduction.

Life Insurance
Life insurance is more than a source of security for your family’s future; it is a versatile asset that can be left to Asbury University as a charitable gift.
