To be a member it is not necessary to make a donation. However, as recommended by our members, the T.F. Torrance Executive Board ask all our members to make a minimum donation of $10.00 per calendar year.

Your donations primarily cover the expenses involved in providing our annual meeting with its keynote speaker, the production of the journal Participatio, the costs of hosting, maintaining and updating our website and the maintenance of other Fellowship initiatives in support of its Mission.

We are not yet incorporated as a non-profit organization; donations are not tax deductible. Thank you for supporting the T. F. Torrance Theological Fellowship!

Note:  If you are a student, in lieu of an annual donation, apply that money toward purchasing a book by T. F. or J. B. Torrance.  Then remember us after you graduate!
