Why Give?

Home Alumni Why Give?

We believe that the body of Christ is diverse in background, life experience, and gifting, and we hope that the Vision 16 community can reflect the diversity found in the body of Christ.  Unfortunately, finances are often a barrier to entry to students who would like to experience Jesus centered community living and we’d like to change that; and it’s not just the students with financial need who are missing out, it’s the entire community!  As a community we are limiting ourselves if we all come from the same background and life experience.  We hope that by making scholarships available we are opening the door to community living that is more reflective of the Kingdom of God.

“After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.” -Rev. 7:9

With your help, we can provide the necessary funds for students to have an excellent college experience through Vision 16. As you may have experienced, the houses provide opportunities for spiritual and relational growth in a pivotal time in a student’s life. Being constantly surrounded by a loving community with similar beliefs to your own can cultivate your faith and create lifelong friendships.

Our goal is to make it so money is not the deciding factor in living in the Vision 16 houses. With your donations to the scholarship fund, we can make this a reality for incoming and current students in Vision 16.There are two ways you can donate:

1. Sponsor a student in the Vision 16: In this relationship, you will get to know the student personally and support them through their journey in the Vision 16. More information on this to come.

2. Donate to our general fund: This fund is important for setting up social events and facilitating relationships in the community. The money will be used for BBQs, alumni-student activities, community events such as mocktail and dances, and more. For donations to the general fund, please send a check to the “Vision 16 Alumni Associaiton” at:
