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.
One of our highest priorities is to secure the necessary funds for faculty support and student scholarships. Your investment will enable Hofstra to attract and retain the most talented young scholars in the nation. At Hofstra, we value the commitment our donors make to the University and their participation in transforming the lives of deserving students.
Giving opportunities include:
Endowed Visiting Chairs
Endowed Distinguished Professorships
Endowed Academic Chairs
Your investment in our scholarship program will help make Hofstra more affordable for the best and brightest students who need financial assistance or whose academic achievements deserve recognition. Your investment in faculty support will enrich the academic life of our campus, and recognize teachers who share a commitment to the education and development of our students.
Gifts to The Parent Fund make it possible for Hofstra University to provide financial support to our students. When a university has a strong financial foundation, it can offer a wealth of opportunities for 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.
