President's Honors

Frequently Asked Questions

President's Honors is a donor recognition and fundraising event. But it is also more than that: it is a celebration of God's faithfulness, of donor generosity, of all that makes the mission of MidAmerica Nazarene University worthy of unwavering, sacrificial support.

The ninth annual President's Honors is scheduled for Friday, October 16, 2020.

We are pleased to honor Tim and Gail Buchanan with the 2020 Lifetime Achievemtn Award.

All legacy, presenting, platinum, gold, silver, bronze and table sponsorships include prime or preferred seating at President's Honors as well as recognition in various media including the event website, e-communications, the printed program, and during the event, depending on the sponsorship level.  Sponsorship is an excellent opportunity to promote a business or organization to a highly desirable audience while providing significant support for Christian higher education.

Tickets for the 2020 President's Honors are now available. You may also call the Office of University Advancement at (913) 971-3600 to reserve your seats.

Attire for the President’s Honors event is semi formal. Suggested attire for men is a dark-colored suit and tie. For women, an evening dress, dressy pantsuit or dress suit are appropriate.

There are three significant ways you can help!

  1. Sponsorship support

  2. Live and silent auction donations
