Giving Match Challenge

As many of you know, this academic year’s theme is #ONEBethany. It is all about coming together to create a bold future for our college. However, that bold future can only be achieved through a collective effort to better our institution and prepare for the next decade.

Today, I am excited to announce the 4-to-1 Bethany Match Challenge. Members of the Beta Theta Pi Alumni have stepped up and will match 4-to-1 all new donations made to the college between now and June 30. So, if you are a first-time donor, or even if you haven’t made a donation in the last two years, this challenge is an amazing way for your donation to have a tremendous impact on Bethany.

By creating this campaign, the Betas have become a shining example of the oneness and togetherness the college is striving for with our #ONEBethany theme.

I want to thank you and the Betas for your generosity and encourage you all to join me in the challenge—and in our mission—to build a stronger community and brighter future for Bethany.

Think Big

This month’s message takes a deeper dive into pillar number two, Scholarship & Research. As society continues to grow increasingly complex, our plan aims to connect Bethany’s vibrant culture of scholarship and research to contribute comprehensive solutions to today’s greatest problems. Find out more about our new programming designed to inspire students to think big.

Bethany Connect

As I shared last time, Bethany College has set a bold course for its next decade by launching a new strategic plan, aptly titled Bethany Connect. The plan is founded on five pillars, the first of which will expand opportunities for our students to engage with diverse cultures and people as they connect more deeply in the world. I am excited to provide some more insight into the power of this pillar in this special video.

I also want to again thank those of you who have given in support of Bethany Connect already and who continue to fuel student success and teaching excellence at our College. Through your continued philanthropy and engagement, our strategic plan will succeed, and the students and faculty who are at the heart of it will thrive.

Together we are #ONEBethany, and together we can transform tomorrow.

Happy Holidays from Bethany College

Wishing you a happy holiday and blessed New Year from everyone at Bethany College.

Bethany needs you now.

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season, I wish to offer my heartfelt thanks for your ongoing support. Without your generosity, we would not be able to deliver the life-changing student experience that we do, nor would we be able to set the course for Bethany’s bold next decade.

For those who have not had an opportunity to support the Bethany Fund, I invite you to do so now. We are implementing a strategic plan that will propel Bethany for unprecedented future success, but we need your assistance to make that future a reality. So, as you prepare to gather with your family and friends, I ask that you please remember your Bethany family as well. I encourage you to take a few minutes to watch this important video where I am joined by Greg Jordan ’81, chair of the Board of Trustees. Bethany needs your support, and we need you now.

One Bethany

Bethany recently hosted another successful Homecoming. Homecoming is always a time for reflection. As we reconnect with fellow alumni and old friends, we are reminded of how much Bethany has impacted our lives and shaped us. However, those connections aren’t just about nostalgia—they are the inspiration for our path forward.

In this video, we are pleased to present an outline of Bethany’s new strategic vision, titled “Bethany Connect.” The strategic vision sets a bold new course for Bethany’s next decade, powered by life-changing connections for our students, our region, and our world.
