Christian Leadership Scholarship


East Texas Baptist University is called to provide a quality Christ-centered education to students. With the help of alumni and friends of the University, ETBU offers scholarships to students based on Christian leadership demonstrated in church, school, and community.  Please consider making a contribution to the Christian Leadership Scholarship program to develop Christian servant leaders to impact the Kingdom.

Blue and Gold Fund


Over the last century, East Texas Baptist University has educated generations of Christian servant leaders. This year we have over 1,750 students studying at ETBU, volunteering in our community, and going into the world on mission. Help us continue to transform the lives of current and future ETBU students through a contribution to the Blue & Gold Fund. Gifts to the Blue & Gold fund provide support for the University and enhance the student experience, meeting the most urgent needs of our students and institution.

ETBU Athletics


With your assistance, ETBU will continue to attract quality student-athletes and offer them a Christ-centered experience where discipleship, ministry, and missions are central to their spiritual formation. You can take pride in having an impact on the success of Tiger Athletics and the academic, spiritual, and physical development of our student-athletes. 

The Legacy of 1912 Society


The Legacy of 1912 Society comprises alumni and friends who, through thoughtful estate planning, deferred giving, and other forms of planned giving, ensure that resources will be available to support ETBU far into the future. The legacy of your planned gift will last forever and support current and future generations of ETBU students.

Pillars of ETBU


The Pillars of ETBU are East Texas Baptist University’s group of core, faithful, and committed monthly donors. 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 ongoing work of the University through monthly giving. Like all contributions to ETBU, you decide how the gift will be used.

Corporate Matching Gifts

The Office of University Advancement for East Texas Baptist University maintains a current database of companies that operate a program of matching the charitable contributions of their employees. In some cases, the match may be three-to-one; however, most matching gift companies will match dollar-for-dollar the amount donated by their employees. This means that your donation to East Texas Baptist University may be multiplied as you help us in our effort to educate true kingdom citizens.

If you have a question as to whether or not your employer participates in this plan, please contact our Office of University Advancement. We look forward to your inquiry.
