The Advancement team does all the things that, well, “advance” the mission of the school!

  • Students, faculty, and staff brought in 739 gifts totaling $150,025 for Christmas Fund Drive this year. Thank you for responding when students reached out by mail, phone and in personal contacts!
  • EMS will join Harrisonburg’s Great Community Give, April 22, 2020; this is a city and county-wide celebration of philanthropy and the dozens of nonprofits that make our community strong. Help us meet our goal of $10,000 this year! easternmennonite.org/gcg
