Capital Campaign

The five-year, $15 million "Ignite Hope" Capital Campaign will set the tone for the next generation as we embrace our heritage and prepare 21st century students for achievement in their future places of service. Campaign donations will fund the restoration of HIU's iconic Googie architecture, upgrade technology and facilities, and provide scholarships for thousands of students.

There are several ways to give:


Cash gifts may be given by writing checks or using credit cards, and include online giving.


You may transfer ownership of stocks and securities to the University.

Planned Gifts

These gifts include trusts, wills, life insurance, and other vehicles, all designed to build a legacy for your alma mater that will last beyond your lifetime.

Real Property

Gifts of real estate and other valuables may be contributed for the University to use or sell, as appropriate, to fulfill its mission.

"As a student at HIU, I had numerous opportunities to develop and hone my leadership skills, which positioned me to enter the business world and have an advantage over my peers. Today, HIU continues to develop leaders with integrity and heart, who have a passion to make a difference and be successful. These are the qualities I look for in building a winning team!"
