Debt Free in Three

As you pray about your faithful giving in 2019, we ask that you consider a gift toward our "Debt Free in Three" emphasis. Retiring our debt will allow Jacksonville College to focus on its true mission to challenge the minds and transform the lives of students. 

















Student Scholarships

Many Jacksonville College students have financial needs that are beyond what normal financial assistance will provide. Jacksonville College has, for many years, ensured that all students, regardless of financial ability, can receive the education we provide in our distinctly Christian environment. You can provide the difference in the life of a student.


Building Restoration

Several buildings on campus have restoration needs for Jacksonville College use. Specific areas of need include:


  • Former Joe Wright Elementary property

  • Memorial Hall (men's residence hall)


Planned and Estate Giving

  • Remember the College in your will. It is a very simple yet profound act that you designate your chosen assets to the flagship institution of the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas. Some people remember the College by leaving an insurance policy with Jacksonville College as beneficiary.

  • Give your investments to Jacksonville College and receive the tax advantage of such gifts, including stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.

  • Some Jacksonville College friends choose to place their assets of land, properties, or other assets in a charitable remainder trust and live from the income of this trust. Other people choose to sell the assets, place them in trust and live from the interest and provide an insurance policy benefit to Jacksonville College.

  • For help with planned and estate giving, you can visit the Southern Baptists of Texas Foundation.
