InvestStudSccssBethany College’s fund raising campaign “Investing in Student Success” continues to progress toward its goal of $4 million in unrestricted gifts over the next two years with the announcement of a $500,000 gift from the Roy and Donice Applequist family-advised fund with the Salina Community Foundation.

The campaign focuses on four areas of giving that include: Scholarships; Campus Ministry/Faith Expression; Funds for Bethany’s Future; and People & Programs. The campaign will kick off a Lindsborg community campaign, headed by local leadership, this month.

The most recent gift represents a challenge to other donors, according to Donice Applequist, a 1973 graduate of Bethany. “We think it is important to insure the viability and vitality of Bethany College,” she said. “It is the gem of Lindsborg and the Smoky Valley community. We hope all those who love and appreciate Bethany College will consider giving at this critical juncture of its history.”
