“In 2017, the College embarked on a journey, with rising faith that the same God who began a good work here in 1889 would provide for Gordon to advance its mission of preparing thoughtful contributors and change-makers, marked by integrity, intellect and ingenuity to serve God and others around the globe. This is a story of God’s faithfulness in making that vision possible.”
President Michael Lindsay
Gordon’s future shines bright
Thank you to the nearly 10,000 friends who have given to ensure Gordon is becoming more affordable, adaptable and anchored in Christian community. Because of you, Gordon’s future is bright. God, great is your faithfulness!
Faith Rising is illuminating Gordon’s future—a testament to God’s faithfulness, evidenced in the support of 9,460 friends like you. The most ambitious, most successful campaign in the College’s history brought us together to raise a staggering $186 million to make Gordon more affordable and adaptable while firmly anchored in Christ. This four-year, comprehensive campaign was a giant step of faith for Gordon. It required all our resources, prayer and energy—and the powerful help and support of the College’s entire community of alumni, parents, friends and foundations. The result is transformational: a firm financial foundation for the College and greatly expanded opportunities for the students of today and tomorrow.
