The tuition fees that Ridley receives from our students only cover about 54% of the cost of providing our world-class theological education in the Evangelical tradition. The remaining costs are covered by generous gifts from individuals, churches and the Ridley Foundation. These gifts enable Ridley to continue to be a supportive college with full-time faculty, a well-resourced library, quality teaching and student facilities, and a strong focus on forming students for ministry.
Equipped and sent out 2000+ graduates into ministry since 1910.
Students study at Ridley from all around Australia and further afield.
One of Australia's leading theological research colleges.
We give to Ridley because we want to see more and more people being trained to train others how to live for Christ and proclaim the Gospel. We need good theological colleges in Australia that provide accurate and thoughtful teaching of God's word. Ridley does that.
I give to Ridley because I trust that they will raise up godly men and women to serve in God's Church, teaching them how to understand and expound the Scriptures in a way that will grow that church in the future.
Regular giving is the most reliable way to give since it doesn't rely on my memory. It also allows a small monthly amount to add up to a more significant amount over the year. It also helps Ridley to plan ahead knowing that money is coming in regularly.
