What a great reason to celebrate!

The goal of Donor Appreciation Day is to raise awareness among Goshen College students that their tuition covers approximately 65 percent of what it actually costs to educate them for one year.  Additionally, we want to celebrate the thousands of alumni and friends of the college who are making an investment in the lives of Goshen College students!
