Fairbanks Center for Global Engagement - Giving

Giving to the Fairbanks Center for Global Engagement

The Fairbanks Center for Global Engagement and endowment carry the Fairbanks’ name because Dr. E. Lebron and Anne were integral in fostering MVNU’s global impact and setting the example of being global citizens. The work of the Fairbanks Center for Global Engagement has been central to the heart of MVNU since our founding, but Anne and Lebron helped us engage our heads, hearts, and hands by partnering with friends around the world in mutually beneficial ways.


Tell Us How You Would Like to be Involved

Fostering a global perspective doesn’t just happen—it’s something we cultivate together.

Gifts of time and talent are bridging the gap between knowledge and experience. MVNU alumni, friends and Collaboratory partners can mentor students, sharing their vocational knowledge and insight, as well as engaging in missional ministry locally and globally.

Gifts of treasure further the work of the Center and allow the MVNU community to make a real difference in the world — now and in the future. You may choose to give a general donation to the Center, sponsor an initiative for a year, or name an initiative through an endowment.

Everyone has the ability to provide support for the Fairbanks Center for Global Engagement through your gifts of time, talent, and treasure. Opportunities include:
  • Support financially
  • Join the Advisory Board
  • Pray for the Fairbanks Center for Global Engagement and its mission
  • Be a partner in developing trips and experiences
  • Receive updates
  • Be a partner on a Collaboratory project
