Appreciation Events

Each spring, benefactors who have supported Messiah University through scholarship endowments, including members of the Heritage Society, are invited to campus to celebrate the legacy of support that has made Messiah University what it is today. Scholarship recipients are also invited to this dinner so that they can meet and thank the donors who have made their scholarships possible.

Each year in October, Messiah Partners are invited to attend the fall Trustees dinner, where they have the opportunity to enjoy an evening of food, fellowship, and entertainment. In addition, the program for the evening often includes an update from President Kim Phipps, as well as messages of thanks from trustees and administrators. The highlight of each Partner Dinner is the opportunity to hear from a student who has benefitted from the generosity of those in the room.
