For its core support, the Institute does rely partially upon endowment income from Wheaton College. Most program-related funding originates in grants from foundations such as the Lilly Endowment, Inc., the Pew Charitable Trusts, and The Luce foundation. Gifts from individual donors, however, are a necessary component in funding the Institute’s work.
 Please take a moment to consider coming alongside the ISAE in its task. To date, the ISAE has sponsored more than forty conferences and consultations; special courses at Wheaton College, colloquia, and special speakers; and has been the driving force behind thirty volumes published by respected academic presses. In addition, the ISAE has undertaken longer-term research projects which have included topics such as the impact of the foreign missions movement on North America, the financing of American evangelicalism, and most recently, a study of American hymnody.
