Tabor College receives $750,000 grant from Sunderland Foundation

Tabor College’s fundraising for its new residence hall took a significant step forward with the

announcement of a $750,000 grant from the Sunderland Foundation. It is the largest gift the college has received from the organization since first working together in 2006.

“We so appreciate the Sunderland Foundation for its partnership and investment in our students,” President David Janzen said. “This gift will continue to enhance the beautiful Tabor campus and student experience in significant ways.”

These added funds will play an instrumental role in meeting project funding, totaling $5.55 million raised by Tabor advancement and administration.

“Since opening the fundraising for this residence hall, we’ve been blessed by the support of our donors and from longtime partners like the Sunderland Foundation,” Vice President of Philanthropy Ron Braun said.

It is the eighth grant that Tabor has received from the Sunderland Foundation. Previously awarded grants include the Shari Flaming Center for the Arts (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), the Shari Flaming Welcome Center (2019), and the Townhouses of Hiebert, Loewen and Wiebe Hall (2006, 2007).

The building, which will house 86 students, will add an additional 28 double rooms, 12 single rooms, and six triple rooms to campus housing. It will be located on the corner of Adams and B streets, just southeast of Dakota Hall and to the northeast of the Business Studies building.
