Husson Annual Fund
Distinct from capital campaigns which focus on bricks and mortar, the Husson Annual Fund focuses on today's needs: professional development for faculty, a quality collegiate experience for students, and financial assistance that keeps Husson within reach for students from every walk of life.

The Chesley H. Husson Society
For individuals who are considering supporting Husson through a bequest, trust, annuity, life insurance policy, retirement assets, real estate, or other deferred gift, the University offers the Chesley H. Husson, Sr. Society. Named in memory of longtime Husson President Chesley Husson, the Society has been established to recognize and honor donors who have generously provided for Husson University through a planned gift. The Society's name honors the man who gave Husson both his name and its nonprofit, independent status.

Matching Gift Programs
If you or your spouse is employed by a matching gift company, you can double or even triple the value of your gift to Husson University. Your company's personnel office can tell you about matching gift policies and procedures. Many companies provide a form, while others allow you to electronically submit your gift information. Your level of recognition will include credit for your employer's matching gift.
