ROAR DAY—One Day Online Giving Campaign

What's ROAR Day?

ROAR Day—Raise Our Alumni Rate—is our first ever one day giving campaign and a chance for you to celebrate all things Bethel. Because our alumni rate—the number of alumni that give back to this place—matters! It increases the funding we receive and increases the value of a Bethel degree.

On October 13 you'll have a 24-hour window to show the huge impact that donors’ gifts have on Bethel.

It doesn't matter how much you give, it matters that you give. One dollar. Five dollars. A million dollars. Every gift makes an impact and it all adds up to make a huge difference!

Can anyone participate?

Absolutely. While there is a special emphasis on alumni giving, support from everyone in the Bethel community—friends, fans, staff, faculty, parents, students—counts!

How do I ROAR?

On October 13, go to: and click on the "Donate Now" button to make your gift and be counted on ROAR Day. You can also make a gift by phone at 651.635.8050.

How can I help spread the word?

Your voice will make ROAR Day a success. By flooding social media with posts about ROAR Day, your gift will raise awareness of Bethel and encourage others to join you in support of Bethel University. Post about ROAR Day on Facebook, Twitter, etc. using #BURoarDay. Tell your friends about ROAR Day, and don't forget to tell them to visit the webpage—where they can find real time results and see what other people are saying.
