Giving to HBU
The future is bright for Houston Baptist University. The changes HBU has already experienced are only a taste of the growth we will experience as we lead the way forward in Christian higher education.
The opportunity is 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.
We now have a twelve-year vision for the future of Houston Baptist University known as the Ten Pillars
. These ten pillars outline how we plan to fulfill our responsibility in the renewal of Christian education.
While this growth is eminently exciting, it also creates even more need for financial support from alumni and friends in order for us to become a national, comprehensive Christian university.
Giving opportunities to HBU include:
Annual Fund – Gifts to the Annual Fund help the University make up the difference between tuition dollars and the actual operating cost of the University. By contributing to the Annual Fund, you are giving the gift of flexibility for the University to respond to emerging needs. Gifts to this fund help the inner-workings of HBU, providing a foundation for students to thrive.
Athletics – gifts to athletics will provide scholarship assistance and general financial support for HBU Athletics and its student-athletes.
Current Scholarships – the gift is awarded as a scholarship within a given academic year. Gifts can be any amount.
Endowed Scholarships – Principal gift is held in perpetuity. 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.
