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.
