Event description
Your support of Meadville Lombard is a direct action of liberation and social justice.

About this event

Our goal is to raise $100,000 at this event to continue our work.

Keynote for this event is Dr. Nicole Kirk. She will give a talk on a piece of very fascinating UU history, entitled, A “Congregation of the Air”: Ministry, Technology, and American Religion

On November 2, 1920, the first commercial radio broadcast crackled across the airwaves from Westinghouse Electric’s station KDKA in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Four years later, over 600 radio stations were broadcasting across the United States. Religious organizations and leaders quickly embraced the new technology and began offering regular religious programming. Several Universalist and Unitarian congregations joined this programming surge and adopted radio broadcasting for worship services. This lecture will consider Unitarian and Universalist radio broadcasts in the Midwest during the twentieth century and the importance of technology for religion today.

Attendees of the fundraiser will hear first-hand from faculty, students, and alums about the impact of Meadville Lombard support, and will be asked to consider a gift in the form of a multi-year commitment to the school.

Partners in Ministry is a three-year promise to support Meadville Lombard Theological School. Your support will enable us to continue our work of promoting liberation and justice during these times by training future ministers and leaders grounded in liberal religious values. We welcome one-time gifts, but would like to encourage you to partner with us through a multi-year commitment.Our giving levels are named after the yearly design of our Contextual Learning Model:

  • Social Engagement Partner $1,000 per year for 3 years ($83.33 a month, if paying monthly)
  • Vocational Partner $5,000 per year for 3 years ($416.66 a month, if paying monthly)
  • Leadership Partner $10,000 per year for 3 years ($833.33 a month, if paying monthly)
