We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the funding campaign for the Center for Biblical and Theological Studies! Gifts and pledges to the project received by December 31, 2008, qualified Cedarville for a $500,000 challenge grant provided by private donors.
This grant was achieved by more than just a few individuals; many gave what they could to be part of this exciting project. In fact, more than half of all donors to the campaign gave between $1-$499 - a statement that gifts of all sizes figured significantly in the awarding of the grant. We are grateful to have a generous Cedarville family that provided such a beautiful facility for our students.
"We were thrilled to see the strong response from so many in the last few months of the campaign," said Bill Bigham, vice president for Advancement. "The partnership of new and current donors - particularly with all you hear in the news about the economy - demonstrates the excitement for the vision and direction of Cedarville University."
The 60,000-square-foot building, opened in August, houses the University's Bible department and The Cove, an academic enrichment center that caters to students' educational needs.
