The Fund for Hofstra University

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 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 become leaders in their fields.

Gifts to the Parent Fund make it possible for Hofstra University to provide financial support to our students. The Parent Fund plays a key role in providing a superior college experience that allows students to discover their strengths and find their purpose.

The Parent Fund 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.

The Office for Development and Alumni Affairs offers alumni, supporters, and friends the opportunity to honor students, staff, and loved ones through a special tradition – the Walk of Pride.

Every year, thousands of Hofstra alumni, students, and friends visit James M. Shuart Stadium and the adjacent Libby and Joseph G. Shapiro Alumni House. A distinctive feature of the Stadium Plaza is the Walk of Pride, which is composed of bricks engraved with the names of students, alumni, and friends. By purchasing a brick in the Walk of Pride, individuals leave an enduring symbol of their support of Hofstra University. 

The Call with Pride program is designed to raise annual funds for the University while offering students an opportunity to learn and gain new skills in the areas of development, marketing, public relations, business management, and communication.

Call with Pride supports all the Hofstra schools, student organizations and associations, and faculty, as well as technological upgrades and campus beautification efforts. The number of donors and the amount of funds raised strongly influence Hofstra's national ranking and profile.

 

Match with Pride – Call with Pride, the University's student fundraising enterprise, calls more than 50,000 alumni annually and raises significant resources for the University. Match with Pride allows you to make a gift that matches the efforts of our Call with Pride fundraisers and the generosity of our donors. Match a Call with Pride shift, week, month, or even semester.

  • Donors, alumni, friends, foundations, businesses, and leaders who are looking for innovative ways to increase their giving and encourage others to give.
