McCann $1 Million Challenge Gift

Bethany College president Dr. Tamara Nichols Rodenberg recently announced a $1 million challenge gift from Robert J. McCann (Class of '80) and Cindy McCann of Madison, New Jersey.

This challenge gift is offered in order to attract other forward thinking donors to raise an additional $1 million. The $2 million infusion will provide funding for technology upgrades, personnel, and modern processes to energize the college's student enrollment and institutional advancement efforts.


If you currently contribute to Bethany College, we thank you and ask that you will consider making a contribution to the McCann Challenge Gift in addition to your annual giving to the College. This will help to ensure the continued growth and vitality of the Bethany Fund as well as the successful completion of the McCann Challenge.

"I am immensely proud of Bethany's 175-year tradition of excellence and I believe the college's best days are still ahead. This gift reflects not only my commitment to fostering educational opportunity, but my confidence in the future of Bethany College and Dr. Rodenberg's leadership."
