End of Year Giving

We are all preparing to close out this 2021 year with holidays and fun gatherings.  We know there are challenging issues taking place: COVID-19, social unrest, educational issues, financial problems, and much more.  Still, we continue to move forward.

To help ABC create more great leaders, now is the time to close the year with a contribution to the college. You can still donate your $97 in honor of our 97th year. You may also contribute other amounts to support the College and all of our program offerings, as well as scholarships for our students. Help American Baptist College be ABC Strong, on the Road to 100 in 2024.

On The Road to 100.

American Baptist College has survived and thrived for 97 years. Established out of a desire to train African American preachers, it now is a full-fledged Historically Black College/University and offers both Associate's and Bachelor's degrees. Nestled on the “Holy” Hill in North Nashville, this College is a treasured institution in teaching, guiding and developing leaders of social change for the 21st century and beyond. Our work places a SEAL (Social Justice, Equity, Advocacy, and Leadership) on the world.
