President’s Council


For over 50 years, the President’s Council has represented a group of alumni and friends that are devoted to advancing the cause of Christian education through faithful support and diligent service to Harding University. In the spring of 1965, at the request of Dr. Clifton L. Ganus Jr., the Board of Trustees gave permission to organize what was originally called the President’s Development Council. Started with 67 families, the Council has grown to a membership of over 800 individuals and families. This group continues to represents the most generous group of donors to Harding University through their financial and volunteer support.

HOW TO JOIN

The Council includes people who are committed to the mission of Harding University: to integrate faith, learning and living. From a wide geographical distribution, the University seeks additional men and women for Council membership who demonstrate interest in advancing the cause of Christian education and its potential impact on the world through their service to Harding University.

Members are asked to commit to a three-year donor pledge in one of the four giving levels to qualify for the Council.  Members are also encouraged to participate in the bi-annual President’s Council meetings and events, although attendance is not required for membership.

Please call us at (800)477-4312 or email at advancement@harding.edu to visit with one of our Senior Advancement Officers about joining the President's Council.  You will be asked to fill out a New Member Questionnaire once your pledge is made. We would love for you to join!

Scholarship Fund

The President's Council Scholarship Fund assists students with a variety of financial needs, including academic, athletic, departmental and performance-related scholarships. With more than 80 percent of Harding's students requiring some form of financial assistance, this scholarship fund addresses Harding's primary commitment to the recruitment of quality students.

Gifts made to the President’s Council Scholarship Fund are unrestricted and therefore added to The Harding Fund. These gifts, along with restricted scholarship donations and endowed scholarships, help reduce the cost of attendance by one-third and make it possible for many students who otherwise could not afford their Harding education to be here. These young men and women leave campus prepared to serve God, their families and neighbors through their faith and work.

Gifts by President’s Council members are not limited to unrestricted donations. Members can make restricted gifts to support specific programs, or to an endowed scholarship, which is regarded as restricted.

What is the President’s Council Medallion Collection, and how do I receive the set of medallions?

Your commitment and support enables Harding to continue the legacy set by our past presidents and many others who made Harding their personal ministry. As a token of our appreciation for your donation, we are pleased to offer the President’s Council Medallion Collection, which depicts the likenesses of Harding’s four presidents on the obverse of one of four 2 ½-inch medallions, and the University seal on the reverse. Each medallion comes with its own wooden stand.

The medallions represent the different President’s Council giving levels. When you give within a specific level, you will receive that level’s medallion and all lower levels. As you graduate through the levels, you will receive those respective medals. Donors are limited to one medallion per level.

Am I required to receive the medallions if I don’t want them?

No, you can decline the medallions if you prefer.

How often does the President’s Council meet?

The President’s Council meets twice annually, during Homecoming weekend in the Fall and Spring Sing (Easter) weekend in the Spring. Attendance is not mandatory, but members are encouraged to attend.
