Help Bethany College Build for a Lifetime

Build the Foundation for a Brighter Future

This three-year campaign will aim to raise $20 million that will improve our campus footprint, create engaging living-learning spaces for our students, and attend to much-needed deferred maintenance. A successful campaign will bolster our Bethany Fund, provide faculty and staff support, and create forward-focused programs that equip our graduates to thrive in the ever-changing world.

Build for a Lifetime

We remain true to our founder Alexander Campbell’s aim to educate whole students—spirit, mind, and body—in the liberal arts and sciences tradition. We value interdisciplinary education and the inclusion of diverse backgrounds. Here, on our historic 1,300-acre campus, we prepare Bethanians not only to make a living but to live lives of meaning.

In addition, the College recognizes its recent graduates through The G.O.L.D. Club (Graduates of the Last Decade). This Club recognizes a special group of alumni. It honors first-time donors to Bethany who have graduated or attended in the last 10 years. The G.O.L.D. Club was established to encourage young alumni to begin the important tradition of giving to their alma mater.

Lastly, the College is appreciative to all the staff who give through The Cornerstone Club. This giving club was established in 2001 by Shirley Kemp, a long-time employee of the College, to increase the staff giving percentage while providing a means for showing staff appreciation.
