About Pioneers Together: A Weekend to Support MNU

These are unprecedented days – a time filled with uncertainty for many. Our hearts and prayers go out to you and especially our students who are unexpectedly completing their semester online.

Many have asked how they can support MNU during this time. In response, we are taking what would have been Commencement weekend and transforming it to a weekend of focused prayer and support for the university.

That’s why we created Pioneers Together: A Weekend to Support MNU on May 1-3.

Here’s how you can support MNU during this time: (1) Praying together: It's what Pioneers do! Join with others in praying for our students and their families; pray also for our faculty and staff. (2) Giving together: It's what Pioneers do! Join with others in making a financial gift the weekend of May 1-3 to support MNU.

The truth is, we need your help in navigating the uncharted waters and financial stress of this time. Together, we can make a difference. Thank you for your prayers and support.


GIVE BY MAIL: 
If you would like to give by mail, please indicate "Pioneers Together" in the memo section of your check and mail it to MNU Foundation at 2030 East College Way, Olathe, KS 66062.

If you are having trouble making your gift online, feel free to call our University Advancement Office at 913-971-3605.

Triple The Impact Of Your Gift Today!


We believe God is still on the throne of grace and He knows what MNU needs during this pandemic. He is also preparing us for the future. As we look to our fall semester, we are ready for our continuing students to return to campus, but we are also looking forward to welcoming a new class of Pioneers.

PRAYER FOCUS: Pray for our future students as they also finish an unprecedented semester and begin narrowing their search for which college they will attend in the fall. Join us in asking God to fill their hearts and minds with Pioneer dreams as they consider MNU and to direct their steps to our campus!

DAILY MATCH: With much of the Alumni Council match still intact, the Board of Trustees is offering to match all gifts up to $10,000 today. As leaders from across our educational region and beyond, our Trustees are focused on our future. The University Fund provides ultimate flexibility to meet the greatest needs on campus including student scholarships, technology resources needed for online learning, student experiences, as well as the unexpected costs that have arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Take advantage of these combined matching-gift opportunities to triple the impact of your gift. So a gift of $50 becomes $150; a gift of $100 becomes $300; a gift of $500 becomes $1,500; a gift of $1.000 becomes $3,000; and so on!

Join us in helping to shape the immediate future of MNU today through your prayers and gifts!

Pioneers Together Day 2: Celebrating Mnu's Mission

 
MidAmerica Nazarene University strives to be a transformative university that nurtures Christlike community, pursues academic excellence, and cultivates a passion to serve. That's our mission and we try to live it out everyday. Our graduates and alumni are proof positive that our mission is not only necessary in a world searching for hope and light, but also extremely relevant during this global pandemic.

PRAYER FOCUS: Please pray for our graduating students today as they conclude their MNU experience and face an uncertain job market. They would have been celebrating Commencement this weekend. God has carried them this far; pray that they will remember the promise in Philippians 4:13 and always find their strength in Christ!

DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT: The Alumni Council is offering to match all gifts up to $10,000 today. Graduates would have been welcomed into the Alumni Association today as part of their Commencement ceremony. The Council would like to recognize the Class of 2020 and encourage alumni past and present to join in supporting Pioneers Together.

$500 Matched By President & Mrs. Spittal; Match Will Start Again This Afternoon!

Five donors each gave $100 gifts and took advantage of a matching-gift opportunity from MNU President and First Lady, Dr. David and Donna Spittal, this morning. So $500 more will be added to our campaign total.

The Spittal Match will continue this afternoon at 3:00 PM. Gifts of $100 or more qualify for the match, which has $2,000 remaining.

Blessings on you, Pioneers!

DONOR MATCH #2: A generous corporate partner is offering to match all gifts up to $10,000 during "America's lunch hour" from 11:30 AM (Eastern) to 12:30 PM (Pacific) -- essentially four hours of giving.

Message From Dr. Spittal, Mnu President: "Praying Together. It's What Pioneers Do!"


For the past 50+ years, MidAmerica Nazarene University has relied on God's provision to help us take steps into His future for our institution. In plenty or in want, Pioneers have joined together to pray for MNU. This weekend is no different. Our university has seen significant, unexpected costs related to the COVID-19 crisis and our students need your support on Pioneers Together Weekend.

FRIDAY: Join us praying for our continuing students as they wrap up the most unusual semester in their academic career. They are taking quizzes, writing papers, working on group projects, and preparing for final exams. They started the semester strong; pray that they will finish it even stronger!

SATURDAY: Come together to pray for our graduating students as they conclude their MNU experience and face an uncertain job market. They would have been celebrating Commencement this weekend. God has carried them this far; pray that they will remember the promise in Philippians 4:13 that they will always find their strength in Christ!

SUNDAY: Pray especially hard for our future students as they also finish an unprecedented semester wherever they are and begin narrowing their search for which college they will attend in the fall. Join us in asking God to fill their hearts and minds with Pioneer dreams as they consider MNU and to direct their steps to our campus!

Please join us in prayer for these young men and women, then respond by giving what you can to support their pursuit of a Christ-centered education at MNU.

Check out this video we put together as a reminder that it will take all of us, working together in God's strength, to accomplish His purposes.

May God bless you as you support MNU through prayer and giving!

Double Your Impact Between Now And Pioneers Together Weekend!

2X. We're not talking about a size here; nope, we're talking about math, as in multiplying by two. Doubling your impact. Helping us make a big dent in our goal for Pioneers Together Weekend.

A generous MNU couple is offering to match, dollar-for-dollar, every donation we receive ahead of Pioneers Together Weekend -- up to $7,500 in early-bird donations -- to help kick-start our fundraising efforts. That means your gift of $50 will receive a $50 match and become $100; a $100 gift becomes $200; a $500 gift becomes $1,000; and so on. The couple hopes to generate $15,000 for the University Fund through early-bird donations and matching gifts.

Beat the rush! Make your gift between now and the start of Pioneers Together Weekend, and our special family will double it!
