About

1836 DAY is Union's annual day of giving when our alumni/ae and friends come together to support students and our shared vision for theological education. 

Your support makes Union's rigorous, compassionate, and progressive theology accessible to a wide and diverse group of students – every contribution makes an enormous difference. 

We invite you to pave the path for future seminarians through scholarship support – ensuring that the newest members of our community can pursue their calling to change the world. Union students are persevering through uncertain times to practice their vocation with a dedication that brings a religiously grounded, critical, and tender presence to the significant personal, social, political, and scientific realities of our time. Your support ensures they are equipped to follow their path.

Your partnership means the world to us! In addition to making a gift, there are non-monetary ways to celebrate 1836 DAY. If you are interested in sending messages of encouragement to students, notes from alumni or other creative ideas, please contact Kevin Bentley at kbentley@uts.columbia.edu.

HELP MAKE OUR CHALLENGE!

Hear from our very own Dr. Pamela Cooper-White about the importance of the type of education that Union is providing. She is also matching $50 dollars for every gift made today up to $5,000. If we get to 100 donors, she will give an additional $5,000. We are only 67 donors away from unlocking that challenge!

Welcome to 1836 Day!

Hi everyone, I'm Rita Walters, the Vice President of Development and Alumni/ae Relations. Today is our 1836 Day challenge! 

1836 Day celebrates the year Union was founded, and recognizes that our work for social justice is ongoing. It's a day where alumni/ae and friends come together to support students and our shared vision for theological education. 

Your support of student scholarships makes Union's rigorous, compassionate, and progressive theology accessible to a wide and diverse group of students.

Peace,
