Louise Porter, McMillan Planned Giving Society Member

Louise Porter celebrated what would have been her husband’s 90th birthday by signing a gift agreement naming an endowed scholarship at Pittsburgh Seminary: The Rev. Dr. Ross W. Porter Scholarship. “Doesn’t that give you the chills?” she asks. A sixth-generation Presbyterian minister, Ross graduated from Pittsburgh Seminary in 1951 and pastored churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida for 37 years. A collection of his sermons was published in 1983. Ross received an honorary doctor of divinity degree from his alma mater, Muskingum College. “The scholarship is a great way to celebrate his ministry,” says Louise. “Memories abound.”


Gary and Judy '96 Angleberger, McMillan Planned Giving Society Members

Gary and Judy '96 Angleberger are using a charitable remainder trust to establish an endowed student scholarship at Pittsburgh Seminary. “As we’ve benefitted from the estates of our parents and investments of our own, we’ve realized that our stewardship extends not just to our annual income but also to our accumulated assets, and that the guideline of the biblical tithe should guide our planned giving as well as our current giving. Pittsburgh Seminary has played an important part in our Christian life, and we want its educational and spiritual impact to continue into the future.”
