'Give to Bethany Day' sets new record

The 2014 edition of “Give to Bethany Day” was a great success! On Thursday, November 13, 2014, alumni and friends made 225 gifts to Bethany. The total contributions were $48,025 during this special 24-hour fundraiser. This outpouring of support certainly outpaced the $25,000 goal that was set for the day. Also, as a result of the support of a few kind donors who generously offered $25,000 in matching funds, the total contributions were $73,025 during this one-day event! Gifts were received both online and by personal submission to the college and ranged from $10 to $5,000. The 2014 event marked the fourth year participating in this one-day giving experience, and the success of the event keeps growing year after year.

During the past four years:

2011 – 79 gifts – $9,350 raised

2012 – 88 gifts – $8,785 raised

2013 – 120 gifts – $22,040 raised

2014 – 225 gifts – $48,025 raised




The outpouring of gifts is a true testament of the love so many people have for Bethany. The students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Bethany know wholeheartedly that generous support and prayers strengthen the enduring mission of this College. The gifts given both on “Give to Bethany Day” and throughout the year help the College in so many ways. These gifts allow us to not only offer Bethany students an excellent college education, but also help us to continue to offer our students an education centered on the One Thing Needful. Thank you to all who continue to make Bethany a wonderful place.
