Fall Giving | Speak Jesus
Making a gift to the Bethel Fund provides financial support for Bethel students who otherwise would not be able to afford tuition costs.
Every dollar goes to students and makes a significant difference.
Your support makes it possible for students to reach their full potential here at Bethel and after they graduate making an impact in their communities.
“Thank you [donors] for being so generous! Every bit helps and takes some stress of affording Bethel off my shoulders.”
How can I support the Bethel Fund?
- Cash/Check/Credit Card
- IRA Rollovers
- Real Estate
If you would like to talk about different support options,
please contact the Institutional Advancement office at 574.807.7485.
We would love to talk with you!
Why do I get more than one letter asking for support throughout the year?
Selected mailings to donors who have made gifts throughout the year are designed as a thank you or updates for the Bethel Fund. An opportunity for making a new gift is always provided because many prefer to make smaller gifts throughout the year rather than one large gift – every one of your gifts matter!
Based on if you’re an alumni and your degree or special interests, you may also receive solicitations from other campus area groups. Our goal, however, is to strive to coordinate timing of various fundraising efforts within the University.
How do I specify support?
You can choose from a short list of the most urgent general fund needs provided on each piece of mail you receive or on our giving form. Most gifts to the Bethel Fund go directly to student scholarships. Unrestricted gifts are the best way to provide support for the changing priorities in any financial budget, so if you would like to make a larger gift for a special program or project at Bethel University, please call the Institutional Advancement Office at 574.807.7485.
How do matching gifts work?
If your company has a matching gift program, your gift to Bethel University may be doubled or even tripled. Forms are usually available from your human resources department. If you are not sure whether or not a particular company matches gifts, please call us at 574.807.7485. Matching gifts from your employer will be credited towards your level of giving.
I don’t live in the United States. Can I still give?
Yes – you can still give here!
