Pillars of ETBU



Pillars of ETBU is a monthly giving program.  Members make a difference, every single month. 

In the same way that the pillars provide strength and support to the various buildings on campus, members of the Pillars of ETBU bolster and fortify the Christ-centered mission and on-going work of the University through monthly giving. Pillars can be found on numerous buildings across the ETBU campus, including Marshall Hall, Craig Hall, H.D. Bruce Hall Feagin Hall, Centennial Hall, Murphy Science, Jarrett Library, and the Bennett Student Commons. 

Who are Pillars of ETBU? 

The Pillars of ETBU are East Texas Baptist University’s group of core, faithful, and committed monthly donors.

How it works: 
East Texas Baptist University’s monthly giving program allows your gift to be deducted monthly from your debit card, credit card, or drafted from your bank account. ETBU will process this secure transaction at the beginning of each month. At the end of the year, you’ll receive a single summary of your contributions, including a tax receipt.  You remain in control - cancel or alter your gift any time by calling us at 903.923.2071 or emailing

Why become a Pillar of ETBU? 

  • Consistent monthly gifts sustain and advance the on-going Christ-centered mission of the University.
  • Monthly giving is a great way to create a big impact as monthly gifts amount to significant contributions over time.   
  • Once a monthly gift is set up, it will automatically repeat each month, providing a convenient way to spread your contribution over time.
  • Support what’s important to you, on a schedule that fits your budget and fits your lifestyle. Becoming a Pillar of ETBU makes giving easier and convenient. 
  • As an alumnus or friend, an ongoing gift ensures that no matter how much else is changing your life, your commitment to ETBU always remains strong.
