Although we may not have known it at the time, our experience as JE students was enhanced significantly by the existence of the Jonathan Edwards Trust. Similarly, current students are the beneficiaries of the Trust’s support, which provides additional resources to the JE community for educational, cultural, and artistic programming, including funds for traditions such as “Culture Draw” and “Fireside Chats,” as well as other initiatives that make JE such a special place.

The Trust has also supported projects that reach beyond the on-campus community, such as the publication of a new history of the college, The Spiders’ Way, and Art of the Printed Word, a book celebrating JE Press printer and teacher, Richard Rose. Additionally, the Trust facilitates donations to an emergency fund which supports JE students who experience unanticipated or emergency expenses. Though the emergency fund has long been available for students in need, it was recently named in memory of beloved JE Fellow Ayaska Fernando, JE ’08.

Your contribution to the Trust, which is a 501c3 organization will make a difference in the lives of JE students and support the wider JE community.
