The Fund for Hofstra University
We have embarked upon a new effort – to raise the level of alumni donor participation. To get to the next level as an academic institution, it is crucial that more alumni support our work financially. Help us reach our goal and raise the level of participation. Make a gift to the University today and register your commitment.
The Fund for Hofstra University is a vital source of unrestricted funds that helps the University attract the best and brightest students through scholarships and financial aid, expand academic offerings, recruit and support accomplished faculty, and enhance classrooms and other campus facilities with the latest technologies.
A robust fund helps lessen Hofstra’s dependence on tuition, while also keeping education affordable. The success of The Fund depends on the generosity of Hofstra alumni, friends and parents who want to ensure that generations of students receive an education that allows them to find their edge and become leaders in their fields.
Last year Hofstra University raised more than $1.4 million in unrestricted funds. To compete with our peer institutions we must continue to do a better job raising flexible funding so that we can respond to opportunities that allow us to strengthen our programs.

Call With Pride (Student Fundraising Campaign)
To support and contribute to The Fund for Hofstra University, through positive and productive phone communications between students, alumni, parents, faculty, and friends.
The Call With Pride program is designed to raise annual funds for the University while offering student fundraisers an opportunity to learn and gain new skills in the areas of development, marketing, public relations, business management and communication. The main purpose is to secure as many participating donors as possible to increase the school’s national ranking and profile. All funds that are raised directly support the goals of the University, its schools, student organizations and associations, and faculty, as well as technological upgrades and campus beautification efforts.
Throughout the year our team of Student Fundraisers will reach out via phone to Hofstra alumni and supporters, in order to inform them on all things Hofstra, update contact information, and to provide the opportunity for all to make their annual gift. Once a pledge is recorded, we will follow up with a pledge card and return envelope. Fulfilling your pledge is key to the success of Call With Pride and to the growth of The Fund for Hofstra University.
