A separate 501(c)3 organization, the MidAmerica Nazarene University Foundation is authorized by the University Board of Trustees and exists solely to raise and manage private resources supporting the mission and priorities of the University. The MNU Foundation’s principle activity is to build, manage and invest the university's endowment fund.
In 2012, thanks to over 2,700 donors, the MNU Foundation managed:
- $7,854,393 in assets (2011-2012)
- Approximately 200 endowments under management
- An endowment spend rate of 4.5 percent of the average three previous fiscal years, consistent with industry standards
The Foundation also seeks to secure planned and deferred-gift instruments in support of the University. Our professional development staff can assist you with trusts, gift annuities and bequest plans. We look forward to serving you as you make plans for a lasting legacy.
