Help reduce Rev. Laura Thompson's student debt

We have all heard about rising education costs and student debt; this trend absolutely extends to those who pursue a seminary degree. National data from the The Center for the Study of Theological Education at Auburn Theological Seminary indicates both the number of students entering seminary with debt and the amounts they have to pay back upon entering the workforce are increasing substantially. It is not unusual for new ministers to be carrying $70,000-$80,000 or more into their fledgling careers.

As Minnesota Valley UU Fellowship installs Rev. Laura Thompson as their next settled minister, we take a moment to pause and reflect on the financial costs and sacrifices that enabled her to be called. In recognition of those costs and in celebration of her ministry and her future with MVUUF, we invite you to contribute toward a gift of reducing her student debt. Thank you for your generosity!
