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.
