Meet the Challenge – Make an Impact

We invite you to support the mission of Bethany Lutheran College by making a gift to The Bethany Fund today via the Student Centered, Mission Focused campaign for the 2023-24 academic year. Your contribution is the most direct, most impactful way to immediately affect the Bethany experience for a vast number of current students.

The Bethany Fund annually allows the college to carry out our mission by supporting:
