ROAR Day

This campaign ended on May 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Bethel University by clicking here!

When we ROAR together, amazing things happen! 

ROAR Day is your opportunity to share your Bethel stories, to inspire others and make a gift that will touch the hearts and lives of Bethel students.

Here is what you need to know: 

- The goal: to see 400 alumni, parents, students, staff, faculty and friends participate in giving.  

- NEW Challenge Alert! A generous donor has stepped forward with a $1,000 challenge. Gifts from the Class of 1995 or earlier will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

- Be one of 400 donors who unlock a $1,000 gift from an anonymous donor. 

- Be one of 25 new members to join the Bethel Coffee Club (a gift of $120+) and unlock a $5,000 gift from a young alumni couple. This anonymous couple met at Bethel and fell in love. They want to encourage others to start giving back and pave the way for future Royals to have a life-changing experience on campus like they did. When you give, choose the Coffee Club incentive and we will send your mug. 

- Alumni, help give first-year students an ice cream social! When you make your gift, select which dorm you lived in your first year at Bethel. The dorm with the most participation wins an ice cream social from Sodexo.

Give early and your gift is doubled. Thanks to a generous donor, there's a $1-for-$1 matching challenge up to $3,000 before noon on ROAR Day. UPDATE: early donors showed up strong and met this matching challenge, unlocking the $3,000 gift!

Bethel students need you. Give today and make Bethel's excellent education affordable to students who will change the world tomorrow. 

Your generosity bridges the gap between tuition and the actual cost of providing Christ-centered education at Bethel. Your support fulfills Bethel's greatest immediate needs. You provide scholarships for students. You expand the value and potential of what each student can receive. 

Let's hear you ROAR!
