Dear Partners in ministry,

Eastern Nazarene College exists as an extension of the ministry of your local churches to prepare young men and women for a lifetime of vocational service.  We believe that each person will reach their full potential not just in finding a vocational discipline but in discovering how God would use their profession to transform the world for God’s Kingdom.  If you would like to invest in the lives of young people towards this end, we have a special opportunity.

Eastern Nazarene College just launched the True to ENC Campaign – the first appeal of its kind for the college.  ENC is humbly asking and challenging its alumni and friends of the institution to give 1,000 gifts (large or small) to the college by Commencement—May 6, 2017.  If successful, generous donors have agreed to match the 1,000 gifts with a $100,000 donation to ENC. 

These contributions will help fund scholarships for 100% of ENC students and assist the college with high priority needs.  A gift of any size will support ENC in a crucial time in its history and invest in its faithful future. Please help the college reach its goal!  You can donate or set up a recurring gift for ENC at www.enc.edu/giving or by calling 1(866)480-2291.

Donate by May 6th   www.enc.edu/giving  #truetoENC
True to God and Alma Mater, true to ENC.
