Support Student-Athletes

How are gifts used?

All gifts to the Royal Club are used to support Bethel athletics. You can choose to designate your gift to a specific sport or project, or undesignated gifts will go to the athletics general fund. Along with larger projects, the fund supports all athletic programs, including spring break trips, equipment, facilities, competition travel, and student-athlete well-being.
