Anthony L. Scott
In addition to a honors Bachelor degree in English Literature from the University of California at Berkeley and a Master of Divinity degree from St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, the founder and principal of Stewardship Advocates, Anthony Scott, completed over 30 courses of study in nonprofit institutional development in institutions such as the Warren H. Deem Institute for Theological Education Management at Columbia University’s School of Business, the Fundraising School at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, the Lake Institute on Faith and Giving, Development and Institutional Advancement Personnel (the educational arm of the Association of Theological Schools Accrediting Agency), the Grantsmanship Center, the Foundation Center, the Institute for Charitable Giving, the Association of Governing Boards and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. He served four parishes over 38 years as an Orthodox priest. These ranged from a medium-sized heritage-oriented parish to a Diocesan Cathedral, to a Seminary Chapel. While at St. Vladimir’s Seminary he led a successful $22 million capital campaign.
For 12 years he was the Chief Advancement Officer of St. Vladimir’s Seminary. He led a team of four development professionals and accepted responsibility for all aspects of fundraising (annual giving, major gifts, capital campaigns, planned giving, grant proposal writing, events and special appeals) as well as strategic planning, board development, volunteer management, project development and the liturgical and pastoral duties, together with four other priests, of the seminary community. In 1999, with the blessings of his Metropolitan Archbishop, he founded Stewardship Advocates. Since then, he has served as a priest-consultant to well over 100 Orthodox parishes and organizations in all jurisdictions in local, regional, national and international projects. See a sampling of these organizations here.
In June 2012, at his own request he was honorably returned to the ranks of the laity in order to receive the sacrament of holy matrimony. He and his wife, Renée, faithfully attend Nativity of Christ Greek Orthodox Church in Novato, California. Renée is the founder and was for eleven years the executive director of the Wichita Treehouse, a charity sponsored by the Orthodox churches in Wichita and supported by hundreds of families, foundations and individuals both Orthodox and non-Orthodox.
