The Campaign for Whitworth
Athletics Administration and Football Operations
Whitworth has begun design of a 20,000-square-foot facility that will house all athletics staff and coaches under one roof. The bottom floor will provide locker rooms, offices and meeting spaces for the program. Its estimated cost is $9 million. Funds are currently being raised for this highest-priority campaign project, and more information is available at www.whitworth.edu/athleticsfacilities.
Theology Center (Chapel Remodel and Addition)
A lead gift from alumni Barney and Joyce Beeksma, both '54, has provided well more than half the funds needed for the expected $2.4 million theology-center addition and the remodel of the existing Seeley G. Mudd Chapel. This project will allow, for the first time, for campus ministries, the office of church engagement and the theology faculty to be co-located. Details are available at www.whitworth.edu/chapeladdition.
A $4 million Pine Bowl Project will provide artificial turf for the football field, as well as guest amenities including a new entry gate and plaza, restrooms and concessions. An upper level will add press-box, game-management and guest suites. Fund-raising is under way, and the university hopes to begin construction soon.
