Join us for the
2022 President's Honors

April 8, 2022

President’s Honors is first and foremost a celebration — of God’s faithfulness, of donor generosity, and of all that makes MidAmerica Nazarene University’s mission worthy of unwavering, sacrificial support.

Launched in 2012, President’s Honors has quickly become MNU’s premier event of the year and a vital source of support for the university. In the event’s first nine years, donors have contributed over $5 million for student scholarships through President’s Honors sponsorships, auction purchases and attendance.

Highlights of this special evening include an elegant dinner, thrilling live, silent and online auctions, unique entertainment and celebrations of generosity. Alumni and friends join corporate sponsors and community partners to reflect on and celebrate the importance of MNU’s mission and the impact our students have on the world.

Your participation in President’s Honors is a thrilling opportunity to be a part of a significant event. Consider how you will become involved!

  • Become a Sponsor
  • Attend the Event
  • Donate Auction Items or Volunteer
  • Bid in the Online, Live and Silent Auctions

To learn more about how you can be involved, contact the Office of University Advancement at 913-971-3600 or foundation@mnu.edu.

We invite you to join us on Friday, April 8 at the Cook Center on the campus of MidAmerica Nazarene University.

Doors open at 6:00 PM and the formal program begins at 7:00 PM.

We encourage all participants to join us by 6:45 PM CST at the latest in order to have time to register for the auction and review pre-event information.
