Hello Friends of Tabor - It’s ‘appeal’ time

Article - 18 June 2019

It’s ‘appeal’ time. It’s also our 40th anniversary and we will be inviting you to take part in celebrations as the year rolls on.

Your support in the past has strengthened us, so this is a quick reminder that we are looking forward to your continued contributions at the end of June – tax deduction time.


If you’ve been following our web site updates and Facebook posts you will have seen that your contributions have helped us reach the:

Number 1 position in Australia for those studying Education!

Number 1 in South Australia, and 2nd in the nation, for those studying Ministry and Theology!

Number 1 in South Australia, and 3rd in the nation, for those studying undergraduate Youth Work or Counselling!

Read the SES National Report for yourself. And note the added commendation to our results that recognises Tabor as a site ‘of best practice, from which other institutions may learn.’

Who would have thought that starting with Barry Chant in the back room of a church in Adelaide, in just 40 years we would rise to the status of number 1 tertiary provider in Australia.*

It’s so startling it is hard to believe.

We have to pinch ourselves to accept it sometimes.

And then we have to say, Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Won’t you join with us?


With your continued help and enthusiastic prayers we will grow our influence even further yet.

Over these 40 years, hundreds of Tabor’s graduates have become first class teachers, youth workers, pastors, missionaries, language workers, counsellors, translators, and you have helped get them there. Your continued contribution will help even more to enrol, study, graduate and continue to be witnesses of Christ’s Majesty.


If you do not specify which fund you would like your donation to go to, it will be allocated to the Gift Fund.

You can give as little as $5 a month, $10 or $25 or $50 as a once-only gift – all the way up to $1,000s as some do – and even a will bequest.

We understand that some donors like to make their contribution with a BSB transfer. That’s easily fixed.
