The Dordt Fund
The Dordt Fund serves the area of greatest need; it bridges the gap between sticker price and what students actually pay for a Dordt education. By funding academic programs, athletics, student scholarships, faculty and staff salaries, and an array of other programs and co-curricular opportunities, the Dordt Fund directly benefits every student and helps make a Dordt education affordable.
As Defender Nation rallies during the COVID-19 pandemic, we see many Dordt students facing significant challenges as they continue to pursue their degree. The Hope Fund sends students a message of hope, and makes it possible for them to complete their degree at Dordt.
A scholarship can be the difference between simply going to school and the opportunity to study, compete, work, and play in a vibrant Christ-centered community. Annually funded scholarships with gifts of $2,000 or more and a commitment of five years are a great way to invest in a student's future.
Defender Forever members are alumni, parents, friends, and fans of Dordt University who are committed to its success through an ongoing, recurring gift. Old and young from near and far, Defender Forever members have chosen to make a lasting promise with a lasting impact.
With the launch of Pro-Tech in 2017, and in anticipation of its growth, the new Pro-Tech facility will allow for additional lab and classroom space, an expanded greenhouse, and a high-bay manufacturing area. Pro-Tech is the nation's first professional path to offer a technical education.
