UPDATED February 22, 2018.
Due to Federal and State regulations, charitable organizations are not permitted to offer drawings, raffles or games of chance without registering for a license. We sincerely regret and apologize for this oversight. To not violate this regulation we have, unfortunately, had to remove the offer to be entered a drawing for library of books originally promoted as part of this campaign in honor of Tony’s birthday.
Even though the book raffle is not possible, it is still possible to give a gift in honor of Tony’s birthday in support of the Campolo Center for Ministry! And, instead of books, we will send everyone a specially made book mark!
Please be generous in supporting Tony’s work to train and unleash the next generation of church leaders.

♩♫♫♬♫♭ Happy Birthday to Tony! ♩♫♫♬♫♭
Yes, that’s right – it’s Tony Campolo’s birthday this month – nearly 83 and still going strong!
It would be great if you could give a gift of a dollar for every year ($83) – but everyone’s gift (of any size) will receive a gift as a token of our appreciation for your support.
We will be promoting this special birthday celebration throughout the rest of the month of February–only one week–on the Campolo Center for Ministry website, through emails and on social media.
We especially want to encourage people to make a first-time financial gift to help the Campolo Scholars. These future church leaders have remarkable skills and great potential and are actively serving in church ministry. Your gifts in Tony’s honor will support their training and development during their time of study at Eastern University.
All these efforts will lead up to the big day – February 25th, Tony’s birthday. After you give a gift online, you can also send him your personal birthday wishes in a comment below.
We are thrilled with the progress of the Campolo Scholars – and happy that this special campaign will raise needed funds for their training. And, we are grateful for the leadership and active engagement of Tony Campolo – and glad to celebrate his birthday in this meaningful way.
Executive Director of Development

P.S. If you have been impacted in any way by Tony’s wonderfully productive ministry career and/or are interested in helping future church leaders and pastors receive needed scholarships, now is a great time to give.
