Bethany Lutheran College (BLC) has received a substantial gift from the Glen A. Taylor Foundation to be used for a capital campaign supporting the currently-under-construction Bethany Activity and Wellness Center on its hilltop campus in Mankato. 

The Bethany Activity and Wellness Center is an 84,000 square foot multipurpose facility that will provide top-notch recreational spaces for student use and the Bethany Vikings athletic program.

The College is not disclosing the gift amount, but it comes at an important time as the funding drive will soon be presented to the Mankato community and Bethany alumni and friends in anticipation of garnering additional support for the project. Nearly 80 percent of the $16 million dollar goal has already been achieved.
