1 Friend, $1 Million

Karin Larson

Bethel University is pleased to announce the receipt of a $1 million gift from friend and donor Karin Larson, supporting the expansion of learning spaces freed up by the construction of Brushaber Commons. The funds will allow further development of the nursing facilities with labs, classrooms, and faculty areas, and replacement of the temporary modular classrooms with permanent classrooms. The additions and renovations support Bethel’s priorities of strengthening instruction and supporting learning.

Larson makes this new gift in support of Bethel’s Christ-centered educational mission. She hopes to encourage others to step forward following the Taking the Next Step campaign in order to help complete several pressing, high-priority capital projects.

Due to current budget constraints, capital projects are carefully being completed only when specific donor gifts or funding has been identified. This generous gift will allow work to begin on these new areas before the end of the school year.
