Public Life Personal Faith Bolin Family Perkins Scholarship Luncheon

The Perkins Scholarship Luncheon, inaugurated in 2010, is a fundraising and outreach event of Perkins School of Theology in service to the larger community. Each year, a well-known speaker presents a keynote address on a relevant topic related to the Church and culture. Pat and Jane Bolin have been naming sponsors of the luncheon for the last decade.

“The Perkins Scholarship Luncheon has been a tradition for more than a decade and is one of the highlights of the Perkins-SMU calendar,” explains Dr. John Martin, Director of Development at Perkins. “The luncheon also provides a way to expose a broader constituency to our educational ministry, as table sponsors invite their friends and associates.” This event serves as a major fundraiser for student scholarships, with proceeds from the luncheon going toward financial aid for Perkins students. 

Plans are underway for the next Bolin Family Perkins Scholarship Luncheon for the Spring of 2023.

Table sponsorships will be available for this event, and all proceeds will support scholarships for Perkins Theology students.

Sponsorship levels are as follows:

Platinum Sponsorship - $10,000 Donation
Gold Sponsorship - $5,000 Donation
Silver Sponsorship - $3,000 Donation
Bronze Sponsorship - $1,750 Donation

All table levels have 10 seats. You can purchase sponsorships at this link, or email johnma@smu.edu with questions.
