A gift of $7.25 million from the estate of Dorotha and Grant Sundquist of Independence, Iowa, will provide direct financial support to students in Bethel's Career Pathways initiative.

President Jon C. Gering announced the gift, the largest single gift in institutional history, in a press conference on campus March 30.

“Across time, Bethel has benefited from the generosity of its alumni, donors, the broader church community, and foundations,” Gering said.
