The Power of Giving
Your Gift Changes Lives
Howard University‘s tradition of providing a first-class education for people of diverse backgrounds dates back to its founding in 1867 when the institution began to prepare leaders to address some of the most urgent needs of our nation and beyond.
When you give to Howard, you have the power to contribute to research that saves lives, graduates who become leaders in their professions, and policies and programs that have and will better communities on every continent of the globe.
The university encourages all donors to use their giving power to make personally meaningful and informed decisions about their contributions. Please, take a moment to review Howard‘s Annual Report to learn about the impact of gifts in action and read through our Gift Policies to learn about the steps Howard is taking to ensure the responsible acceptance, administration and stewardship of gifts made to Howard.
To properly thank and recognize donors for exercising their power to support and invest in the university, we annually publish our Honor Roll of Donors. The list, which is based on membership in one of our Capstone Societies, promotes a culture of giving and recognizes the generous individuals and organizations that contribute to Howard each year.
We hope that this information will better inform you and motivate you to exercise your power to give.
With the help of our alumni, parents, friends and corporate and foundation partners, Howard University can continue to change lives, change futures, and change the world!
