Join the Giving Tuesday Movement

Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities. It’s not just one day – this is a global, social movement that’s working every day to fuel more generosity in service to building a more just and equitable world.

On Nov. 29, 2022, Bethany College will join together to support the Greek houses, Performing Arts, and The Bethany Fund.

Each of our seven active houses will be raising funds for house renovations and cosmetic needs. Your gift will directly support the house, or houses, of your choosing. Two cash prizes have also been provided by the College. The house raising the most funds will receive a $25,000 bonus towards their project. The house with the most Bethany College alumni participants will also receive a $25,000 bonus. Additional prizes will be given to the houses with the most activity on Giving Tuesday—Nov. 29, 2022.

The competition for the bonus prizes will extend through March 31, 2023.

Our Seven Active Greek Houses:

  • Alpha Sigma Phi
  • Alpha Xi Delta
  • Beta Theta Pi
  • Delta Tau Delta
  • Phi Kappa Tau
  • Phi Mu
  • Zeta Tau Alpha

*A house may only win one cash prize

Your support of our Performing Arts Department will greatly enhance the needs of our theatre, band, chorus, rock ensemble, dance team, and more! Each of these areas are at the heart of Bethany, and they continue to flourish, bringing new opportunities to all students across campus.

Your gifts will allow our programs to continue to grow, provide new experiences to our students, and to share our talent with the community and beyond. Additionally, there will be a $10,000 match provided by a generous member of Bethany’s board of trustees and Bethany College.

Support for The Bethany Fund enables us to continue our commitment to each student who enters the Oglebay Gates at Bethany College. Your gifts have allowed us to offer new academic programs, create and sustain student scholarships, maintain and sanitize our buildings, and much more!

The Bethany Fund directly impacts the campus experience for our students, faculty, staff, and supports our strategic plan, Build for a Lifetime.
