Brite Circle is the group of supporters who give an annual gift of $1,000 or more to enable students to prepare for ministry and to maintain Brite’s standard of excellence in academics and pastoral training.
Brite Circle members’ support of Brite Divinity School is transformational in making it possible to pursue the missions of the School and for individuals to answer their call to ministry. It transforms the lives of these students, the churches and institutions they will serve, the communities they will serve in, and everyone they will touch through their ministries through the course of their lives.
Brite Circle was established to recognize these supporters’ partnership with Brite. Brite Circle members are honored in the year that they make a cumulative gift of $1,000 or more to any Brite fund/s, and throughout the following year. Additional levels of recognition within Brite Circle include:
Faith Partners, supporting with $2,500-$4,999;
Mission Partners, supporting with $5,000-$9,999; and
Covenant Partners, supporting with $10,000 and more.
