Beth Trott Clark

Director of Annual Giving

As the Director of Annual Giving, it is my privilege to work with a team of colleagues who is deeply devoted to the mission of Messiah College and the importance of student access to quality Christian higher education. Nearly 100% of Messiah students receive some type of financial assistance, often by means of scholarships given by our generous donors. Our Annual Giving team seeks support for the Messiah College Annual Fund, which provides scholarship aid, support for service and missions initiatives, resources for specific educational programs and general financial needs of the College.

In addition to raising funds for scholarships and other educational expenses, we believe we have a responsibility to be a part of students’ educational experiences while here at Messiah. Our team strives to create a culture of philanthropy and equip our students to lead lives of responsible financial stewardship. We desire that students’ gratitude for their education compels them to give generously toward the education of future Messiah students.

Beth joined the Messiah College community in 1999. Prior to assuming the role of director of annual giving, she served as the assistant director of the Internship Center for over 12 years and taught as an adjunct instructor in the Psychology Department and the Graduate Counseling Program. Beth holds a B.S. in Bible and an M.S. in Counseling. During her “free” time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Steve and their two daughters.
