    Enhancing the mission while raising funds and enriching relationships

    Give to Harding

Bryan BurksThe Office of University Advancement is an essential part of Harding’s Community of Mission by spreading awareness of Christian education, building relationships, and generating financial support for the University. We advance the mission of Harding through our different programs designed to serve and inform alumni, donors, parents, and friends. Through all of these programs, we aspire to foster a culture of meaningful engagement, philanthropy, and stewardship from a Christian worldview.

Our desire is for alumni, parents, donors, and students to feel connected, committed and unconditionally invested in the growth and success of Harding University. Under the Office of University Advancement, we seek to advance Harding through the following programs:
