The Voice: Fall 2002
Fall Drive goal is $925,000
The goal of the annual Fall Drive for the Dordt College Fund is to raise $925,000 during this academic year. The Dordt College Fund, which keeps tuition affordable, is vital for improving the quality of our academic programs. It makes possible access to the latest technology and library resources. It helps fund off-campus study, internships, and new programs. The Dordt College Fund is also an important resource for the grants and scholarships.
This year a group of donors established a matching challenge program to encourage donors to increase the amount of their gift to the Dordt College Fund. If a donor gave $100 to the Dordt College Fund last year and gives $200 this year, the group of donors will meet that increase with another gift of $100.
Development staff members are currently making visits, and thirty-five students are working the phones to raise the money we need. Reaching our goal will help ensure excellence and broaden opportunities for our students and faculty.
