In order to improve interaction between teachers and students, including those beyond the classroom, we would like to acquire a Flat Panel Display (FPD) for each classroom. These are essentially large screen televisions, which when connect to the Internet allow teachers and students to contribute to (or download from) the panel from anywhere and potentially with any wireless device.

A significant resource for our library is a collection of writings by the Church Fathers entitled Patrologia Graeca, which was first published in the 19th century by a French priest named Jacques Paul Migne. This collection contains the Greek text with an interlaced Latin translation. Ever since it was published it has enabled thousands of scholars to discover the depth and richness of the living tradition of the Church.

Due to administrative space demands, current student housing located in the adjacent building will be transformed into offices in September 2022, creating an immediate need for alternative housing. We must also plan for the growing enrolment of Graduate Students, which are almost entirely international.

Your donation, large or small, will make a huge difference. You can be sure that your gift will be applied where it will have the greatest impact. Your gift can be a special contribution, or you can commit to a recurring donation.
Recurring donations make our jobs a little easier as they allow us to plan and budget accordingly. By giving a special gift, or signing up for monthly contributions, you are investing in the lives of college students from all around the world and especially in Jerusalem. Your gift is what makes learning possible, keeps the lights on in our classrooms, covers the cost of utilities and building rent. You are investing directly in the lives of students who will go on to impact the world in hundreds of different careers and ministries around the world and will shape and change someone’s life forever.
Help Polis by financing one of our Current Fundraising Projects listed above.
Many students, often very gifted and knowledge-thirsty, greatly desire to study but cannot afford to do it. They have life projects and are looking for help to make them true. It might be a potential teacher of Greek, a Bible scholar, or an Arab student who needs to learn Hebrew in order to find a job. Polis constantly receives demands for financial help. If you wish to support a student, please contact us and we will connect you with the student whose project you want to fund.
