A Special Letter from the Principal

Dear Friends,

As the college has grown and developed, and as our programmes have increased in number, it has become increasingly difficult to find new donors each year to maintain the required funding. GWC is dependent on donations to meet 80 percent of its operational costs.

The GWC Board has created an Endowment for GWC called the “Ark Endowment Fund” to lessen this risk. This will reduce GWC’s current dependency on annual donations from 80 percent to half of that. This means that I would need to raise only 40 percent of the annual operational costs each year.

We have been greatly encouraged by a large start-up donation that has reached 10 percent of our goal. There has also been a pledge to double any further donation(s). This is a great opportunity for you as a donor to help us develop sustainability.

We encourage you to consider a once-off gift to this Endowment, for the long-term sustainability of GWC. Another way to support the Endowment is to leave GWC a gift in your Will. Click here to for the information needed to leave a legacy gift to GWC.

An Endowment requires careful stewardship and governance, and a special advisory committee has been appointed for this purpose.

Your giving to the GWC Ark Endowment will provide growth and expansion opportunities for GWC to equip more African Christian workers to know God’s Word and to make Him known across the African continent. Please partner with us in this Gospel endeavour.

Yours in Christ
Mark Dickson
