September 27, 2010

Dordt College publicly announced its $50 million comprehensive campaign with a festive Vision 2020 Campaign kickoff on Saturday, September 25. The event celebrated alumni and students across North America who are making a difference in their communities.

The lively program included video of engaging interviews with notable alumni, including Brent Assink, Executive Director of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, and Sandy Faber Johnson, Director of Denominational Ministries for the Christian Reformed Church in North America.

The Dordt College Concert Choir performed, and speakers included Dordt College President Carl E. Zylstra, Board of Trustees Chair Randy Kroll, students, faculty, and key volunteers. The program showed how the Vision 2020 campaign is enabling Dordt College to grow in excellence, impact, and outreach.

Vision 2020 is a comprehensive $50 million campaign that is providing scholarship funds, academic support, facilities upgrades, and operational and endowment support. The recently completed employee/retiree portion of the campaign received 100 percent participation from full time employees, raising more than $1.5 million from those who know Dordt most intimately.

“We’re excited to see the commitment and dedication of Dordt College faculty, staff, and retirees to building this college for the future service of coming generations of students,” said Zylstra.

Anyone who has supported Dordt College and all who appreciate the impact of a Dordt education on the lives of generations of students and communities around the world are invited to attend the inspiring and informative programs that will take place in various locations around North America.
