Exciting things are happening at Gordon. Just a couple months ago, we publicly announced Faith Rising, a five-year comprehensive campaign to meet the emerging needs of students. We were blessed to receive a record-breaking lead gift of $75.5 million from an anonymous donor, the largest donation ever given to a Christian liberal arts college and the largest in Gordon’s history. The gift is designated for the College’s endowment, which will more than double in value, and directed to fund student scholarships, specifically the premier honors scholarship (introduced two years ago through our Global Honors Institute). But perhaps even more encouraging than the financial implications of this truly remarkable act of generosity is what it signifies: a vote of confidence in Gordon’s mission and vitality for the short- term and the long-run.
