Giving to HBU
The future is bright for Houston Baptist University. We are half way through our twelve-year vision for HBU known as the Ten Pillars
. These ten pillars outline how we plan to fulfill our responsibility in the renewal of Christian higher education.
Thanks to our faithful alumni and friends who have contributed financially, we have already made significant strides towards the fulfillment of this vision. While this growth is eminently exciting, it also creates even more need for financial support from alumni and friends in order for us to reach the goals set before us. The people who choose to fuel HBU's mission will be instrumental in revolutionizing Christian higher education and in building the first in a new wave of great Christian universities in America.
Opportunities to give to HBU include:
Annual Fund – Gifts to the Annual Fund go to fund current student scholarships. The more money we can offer students in scholarships the easier it will be for them to come to HBU and remain here throughout their program, allowing them to focus on their studies and be transformed by the influences of a Christian higher education.
Endowed Scholarships – The principal gift is held in perpetuity and scholarships are funded through interest earned from the principal gift. Endowed scholarships require an initial gift of at least $10,000, with the understanding that the balance will be increased to at least $50,000 within five years. You have the opportunity to name the scholarship and to determine the parameters for distribution.
HBU Fund – Gifts to the HBU Fund help us to make up the difference between tuition dollars and the actual academic and programmatic costs of the University. Giving to this fund helps the inner-workings of HBU, allowing for flexibility to respond to emerging needs and providing a foundation for students to thrive.
Other areas of your choice – There is an abundance of opportunities for you to give to HBU in a way that is meaningful to you. If you have questions about a particular program you can call our office at 281-649-3222 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to help.
Thank you for considering a gift to HBU, we truly appreciate every gift and every giver. It is through your support that we are able to impact the lives of our students, empowering them to go out and impact the community and the world for Christ.
