Family Fund

The Howard Family Fund, the University's internal giving campaign for faculty and staff, is the vehicle through which you can demonstrate your leadership. Through this program, you can contribute and designate funds to help the University reach its long-range funding goals. It is a program committed to improving the University for the thousands of faculty, staff and students now and in the future.

Making a Commitment is Easy 

You may choose from one of the options below to make your donation:

Payroll Deduction or Online Giving.

Your Contribution Creates Opportunities

Your annual contribution will directly support the campus community by strengthening academic programs, making capital improvements and funding scholarships, fellowships, assistantships and collaborative partnerships.

Every Gift Counts

Moving forward and looking ahead, we need your support and leadership now more than ever!

Our goal is to increase participation in the Howard Family Fund and continue to provide funding to support Howard's future.

You may designate gifts to any particular department or program, including the Student Aid Fund, an ongoing initiative to improve student retention and address gaps in student aid. This fund provides critical scholarship support for students who demonstrate both academic potential and unmet financial need, to ensure their continuous success at Howard.

Every gift to the Family Fund counts and makes a difference. Your pledge is your promise to support the University and future generations of leaders. Our commitment to build Howard's future depends on your commitment to honor your pledge.
