As with all seminaries, Westfield House income is comprised of student tuition and fees, together with donations. On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of Westfield House, we sincerely thank God for the generosity of all our donors in helping us in our mission of preparing men and women for service in the global Lutheran church. Without you, our supporters, Westfield House cannot fulfill this mission. Donations may be earmarked for a specific purpose, including but not limited to:
- student bursaries,
- maintenance and improvement of facilities, or
- general running costs (which may include salaries, etc.)
- capital campaigns for projects which are specified from time to time.
If donations are non-specified the Principal and Preceptor will apply them to the area where they are most needed.

Donating in the USA
To give online, please see sidebar to the right.
Support from donors in the United States comes to Westfield House through The Friends of Westfield House, a 501(c)3 organization, established with the purpose of assisting Westfield House to continue providing superior Lutheran education in England. The Friends have a strong commitment to funding bursaries, or scholarships, to outstanding students who would not otherwise be able to benefit from this education. The number of bursaries varies each year, depending on need.
The faculty and principal at Westfield House select students for which an application is made to the Friends for a bursary, and the Friends of Westfield House provide the means for those students to study.
It is through the generosity of those who give to the Friends of Westfield House that students from all over the world have been afforded a first class, Lutheran, theological education in Cambridge.
