Scholarships are vitally important to the educational success of college students today; this scenario is the same for the majority of Warner University students. More than 95% of WU students receive some form of financial aid from the University. You can see why scholarship funding is so important to offering a high-quality, Christian education. Through the establishment of Endowed Scholarships, Warner University is able to provide student financial support for academic award and financial need. An Endowed Scholarship can be established through a donation of $20,000. The fund can begin with any amount and as you give it continues to grow. When it reaches $20,000 it qualifies as a Named Endowment. Endowed Scholarship Policy and Endowed Scholarship Form

Alumni Giving

Support your Alma Mater by taking the Lion’s Share challenge. For as little as $10 per month, you can join other Royals in securing the future of Warner University. Of course we will be happy to accept larger gifts as well. Donations can be made through a one-time gift, but they can also be set up to be automatically deducted from your checking/savings account or credit card, if you prefer.

Alums can also support WU through employer matching gifts, student recruitment, and contacting Career Services with internship and employment opportunities. All of the options help the university continue to grow while increasing the value of the diploma you already hold. Contact Director of Alumni Relations, Kareen Pickett, at or 863-638-7248.

Clark Peacemaking Initiative

The Peace and Conflict Transformation (PACT) group was named in honor of Dr. Robert and Fran Clark at Warner University. A fund was established to support this peacemaking initiative. PACT is committed to linking with movements at sister Church of God institutions of higher learning in bringing together the “international network of followers of Jesus who take seriously His call to be peacemakers, and to work and pray for peace in the hearts, homes, communities, nations and the world” (Church of God Peace Fellowship).

Bob & Frances Clark

Clark Portrait

This fund honors persons who are national treasures for the Church of God-Robert and Frances Clark. Two of their life passions are missions and peace. They are known and admired for pouring out their lives for the people of India and Pakistan. They became beloved members of the Warner University family when Dr. Robert Clark taught and shared his heart for Missions. Mrs. Frances Clark’s board experience and keen insights were a great asset to the Missionary Board when she was elected to its governing body.

Bob is from an extended family of peacemakers. He and Fran are pioneer leaders of the Church of God Peace Fellowship, start in the 1930s by Dean Russell Olt and Dr. Adam Miller. During the 2007 General Assembly of the Church of God, the Clarks received the “Peacemakers of the Year” Award.

In our eagerness to be supportive of the CLARK PEACEMAKING FUND during 2007, the Peace Fellowship made an initial contribution of $1,000. A retired WU faculty member gave $2,000. Clark family and friends plan to make annual, sacrificial gifts.

Will you help honor Bob and Fran by sending a gift?

“A harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.” – James 3:18
