Crowell Trust and Chatlos Foundation Grants Total $50,000


The Crowell Trust and The Chatlos Foundation have generously donated two new grants to Multnomah Bible College and Biblical Seminary.

In May, The Crowell Trust awarded a $25,000 grant, providing for seminary scholarships, which will be dispersed in the fall of 2007. Located in Colorado Springs, The Crowell Trust was established in 1927 by the founder of The Quaker Oats Company, Henry Parsons. The mission of the foundation is to support the advancement of evangelical Christianity to qualified organizations.

The Chatlos Foundation also awarded a $25,000 grant in May to supply scholarships for college and seminary financial aid. The foundation, located in Longwood, Florida was founded in 1977 by Mr. William Chatlos. He points out that, "You can't measure your worth by the values we place on our possessions. A calamity of only a few seconds can change all of that. Real worth is determined by what you do with what you have be it large or small."

"Partnerships with these foundations and others like them enable Multnomah Bible College and Biblical Seminary to prepare a new generation of servant-leaders for useful service in their communities," Ryan Doughty, Multnomah's research and grant specialist said. "The generosity of these foundations is a gift of multiplication whose impact will be felt in the classrooms, mission fields, and churches where our graduates are and will be serving."

Founded in 1936 in Portland, Oregon, Multnomah is a fully accredited College and Seminary that offers full bachelor's and Master's degrees. The institutional mission of Multnomah is to educate, equip, and enrich Christians for leadership in their church, their community, and their world. More institutional information can be found at
