WHY GIVE TO BU?
Bethlehem University, the first registered University in Palestine, has been providing education of excellence to multiple generations in the Holy Land. Its mission as it serves its critical higher educational role emerges from the vision that in a very difficult reality in Palestine, Bethlehem University is an oasis of peace and a beacon of hope for its students, preparing them to create and actively take part in the future of Palestine with their knowledge, skills, and ethics.
By giving to Bethlehem University, you will be directly involved in this noble mission of educating the future leaders of Palestine and helping them build their lives and their communities, with access to meaningful employment, creative entrepreneurship and service to others.
