Support CHS


Just like other religious communities, Pagans experience births and deaths, pains and joys — the full range of human experience. But too often, when we need support or guidance from an experienced person of our own faith, we do not know where to turn. Every week at CHS we hear comments like these:

Do you know of a Pagan minister to help my family with a funeral?
I feel I should be visiting Pagans in prison, but don’t have a clue how to go about it.
I’ve been in recovery for ten years, and now I’m ready to give back as a counselor.
Covens and circles where I live want to do more, but no one really knows how to lead.
We have a chaplain at my Army base, but he’s not comfortable with doing a ritual.

Many of us have received outstanding training in our chosen tradition, but there are some special individuals who feel compelled to go above and beyond with their service to others. These are the people who come to Cherry Hill Seminary for a different kind of education.

Cherry Hill Seminary provides quality higher education and practical training in Pagan ministry and earth-based spirituality studies. In fact, we were the first and even now are the only Pagan graduate-level program in the world!

Students look to us to:

Provide an extensive education in diverse aspects of Pagan philosophy, practice, and skilled ministry;
Supplement existing ritual and magical skills with training for professional ministry and counseling;
Serve as an ongoing resource for individual continuing education; and
Provide a forum for scholarship and community

As with any worthwhile endeavor that serves the public, the support of our donors helps Cherry Hill keep our tuition rates affordable, and our quality of service and programs cutting edge.

Why would you give to Cherry Hill? While many resources exist to train and assist students as they pursue their chosen Pagan tradition or path, there is an acute need for specific training in areas such as rites of passage, working with children and families, counseling, addictions, marriage and family issues, religion and the law, interfaith work, Pagan scholarship, media and public relations, ritual arts, leadership development, and nonprofit management. No other seminary provides such training in a Pagan environment, by Pagans, for today’s Pagan communities.

Whether you are seeking a degree, or simply want to enjoy some good continuing education, our students consistently praise the Cherry Hill experience as a supportive environment with exciting and challenging programming. And since we provide our programs as distance learning, students can pursue their studies at their own pace, from their own home, with occasional trips to join our small-group intensives.

Please consider making a gift of your own to Cherry Hill Seminary. We run our unique program on a very lean budget, so every contribution makes a difference, whether large or small.

You can help us grow stronger.  Your contribution is an investment that touches the lives of people you may never know, in places you may never see.  See below for all the ways you can support Cherry Hill Seminary, or click the image below to give to support
