Fund-Raising 2018–19 Time: You Can Help the Wilmette Institute’s Reach Further into the Bahá’í and Academic Communities
The Wilmette Institute has just issued its fund-raising appeal for 2018–19. The letter emphasizes its transformation during the last fiscal year resulting from the Institute’s historic arrangement with United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, in New Brighton, Minnesota. But that transformation came with costs and also opened immense potential for many more students, Bahá’ís and friends of the Faith, to take selected courses on Bahá’í topics for university credit. To continue on its new path, the Wilmette Institute needs to expand its staff, pay its faculty more, and cover other associated expenses. We invite you to help us in our efforts to reach further into the Bahá’í and academic communities and the younger generation. Our fund-raising letter sets out more details about our goals, provides ways to donate electronically and by mail, and gives you a fact sheet on the Wilmette Institute.
