Spring Giving Helps Westar Grow

Thanks to our generous donors and supporters!

Westar’s generous donors continue to inspire and invest in Westar’s growth and impact on scholarship and culture.

During our spring campaign, Westar experienced:

A 25% increase in donors to the Spring Appeal

A Board member donation challenge, matched in 24 hours

Increased funding through gifts made outside of the Spring Appeal

This investment breathes life into:

Publication of Thandeka’s groundbreaking book, “Love Beyond Belief”

Launch of the second annual “Super Jesus on the Road Seminar” in Auburn, California

Planning for “Westar on the Issues”, an innovative mini-seminar series on timely topics

Technology advances that improve customer and donor relations while increasing profitability through streamlined processes

Every gift to Westar is a vote of confidence in the importance of religious literacy that brings truthfulness and critical thinking to the challenging issues we as a society grapple with every day.

To our generous investors we say “THANK YOU”.
