What is Philanthropy?

Philanthropy is a voluntary action for the public good. It is a long-standing tradition shaped by compassion and community to make difference and enhance the quality of life.

People show their philanthropic support in many ways through their time, talent and treasure to the areas of life that mean the most to them, for example, education.

Ultimately, giving back provides us with a sense of purpose. By making a financial gift to Husson, you help strengthen our academic mission, proving that Husson is a place worthy of financial investment.


How giving back makes a difference:

  • Did you know that alumni giving is used to rank colleges and universities? Making gifts to your alma mater adds value to a Husson degree.
  • Last fiscal year, which ran from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, we received more than 3,900 gifts from 1,457 generous donors. Of that, we received gifts from 161 student donors!

Because of the generosity of our donors, we were able to award 129 different scholarships that benefited 560 students!

Remember, small gifts make a BIG impact, especially when we all come together to support our community.
