Dordt College Receives $3.9 Million Gift


Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, has received an estate gift worth nearly $4 million.

It comes from Lowell Andreas, former president of Archer Daniels Midland, a company that processes agricultural products. Andreas died April 4 at the age of 87.

The $3.98 million gift is the largest in the college’s history. President Carl Zylstra remarked, “This generous gift from his estate will help grow Dordt College as an international leader in the field of Reformed Christian education.”

In recent years Andreas had already donated more than half a million dollars to Dordt College, funds which established the Andreas Center for Reformed Scholarship and Service in 2008.
