Giving Clubs

Since 1947, when the first class of 94 students invested themselves in the continued expansion and strengthening of Bethel College, there has been a rich history of taking care of today's needs while planning for those of tomorrow.



How do I specify support?

Unrestricted gifts are the best way to provide support for the changing priorities in any financial budget. The majority of Bethel Fund gifts are used to provide scholarships for our current students.


How do matching gifts work?

If your company has a matching gift program, your gift to Bethel College may be doubled or even tripled. Matching gifts from your employer will be credited toward your level of giving.
