President's Circle


Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s President’s Circle is made up of friends and alumni supporters who contribute $1,000 or more to the university during our current or prior fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Their gift fuels the University Vision to change the world with the love of Christ.
