 What are the types of membership?

Annual membership is for people who commit to give $1,000 or more on an annual basis (based upon ENC’s fiscal year, which is July 1 – June 30).  This can be a single gift or several gifts totaling $1,000 or more.  This type of membership is renewed each year.

Lifetime membership is for those who have given a lifetime total of $100,000 or more.

Why should I become an ENC Society member?

There are many reasons to join the ENC Society, including: helping to create a "culture of giving"; receiving special benefits as our "thank you" for your commitment; special communications from ENC; opportunities to feel more connected to the community through ENC student and alumni stories; and invitations to attend events on campus throughout the year where our members are able to fellowship and build camaraderie.

What is the difference between Charter Membership and regular membership?

The Charter Membership period was from January 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. Those who joined the ENC Society during that time receive additional benefits exclusive to Charter Membership including special recognition and exclusive apparel offers.

Do I have to give to a certain fund?

A gift to ANY fund is included toward your membership.  Please be sure to denote your preferred fund with your gift.

What exactly am I committing to?

Membership in the Society communicates that one wants to make a significant impact on a student’s journey at ENC.  By joining the ENC Society, you are indicating that you would like to continue supporting ENC through financial investment.

How do I know if I am a Member?

If you have made a gift of $1,000 or more in a given fiscal year, or if you express interest via correspondence with ENC’s Development Office, you will receive an informational packet inviting you to membership.  Once you return the informational response card and accept membership, you will receive a “Welcome Packet”, welcoming you to membership.

I work for a matching gift company? Does my match impact my membership?

Yes! Your giving as well as your company’s matching gift count as qualifying gifts toward ENC Society membership.  Corporate matching is also included in your lifetime giving total.

A Message from the President

At Eastern Nazarene College we believe there is no conflict between the best in education and the best in Christian faith. We believe a Christian education enlarges the approach to knowledge to include more than just facts, figures, and ideas.
