Help send Aunt Kate to seminary

I've been called to formation for the priesthood in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota (ECMN).  I'm doing my study through the ECMN School for Formation ttps://schoolforformation.org  which provides all the canonically required courses for ordination.  The SFF program costs about $10,000 altogether. My parish, St John's in Minneapolis, has committed to providing a third of the tuition and ECMN is matching that, so I'm very fortunate. That leaves me with about $4000 to come up with for my part, including books and workshop fees and such. I live on Social Security and have very limited resources. I'll need help to pay for the SFF, even though it is much less expensive than a three year seminary degree. I will be serving as a nonstipendiary priest in Minnesota. That means I wouldn't be getting a salary, so I'll be able to serve communities that have few resources to hire a pastor. That would give me great freedom to work in small faith communities and even to experiment with forming new faith communities in areas where there is no Episcopal presence.  I'd be very grateful for any donations. I'll keep all donors and their families in prayer and will write to each one to let them know how my formation is going. Blessings on you for reading this far!
