Donor Advised Funds
You can direct gifts to HU from your donor advised fund (DAF). The first step is to let HU’s Office of University Advancement know that you intend to direct a gift to HU through your DAF. It is important for us to know the specific funds you are interested in supporting with this gift to ensure your gift is properly utilized.
Notify the Office of University Advancement to share your DAF gift details or for additional assistance regarding what to support. Contact the office at Giving@HarrisburgU.edu.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
If you are 70½ years of age you can use your individual retirement account (IRA) to make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) to make a gift to HU. A QCD can satisfy a required minimum distribution (up to $100,000.)
For more information on giving from your IRA, contact the Office of University Advancement at Giving@HarrisburgU.edu.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Honoring a special person in your life with a gift to HU creates a personal and lasting tribute. You can specify for whom or to what area you are making your gift. We will also send an acknowledgement to the honoree or family of the deceased notifying them of your thoughtful gift, but not revealing the amount of your contribution.
Below is the language you may use in your loved one’s obituary or memorial pages:
In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made to Harrisburg University Science & Technology in memory of (name of deceased) allocated to (name of allocation) mailed to Harrisburg University, 326 Market St, Harrisburg, PA 17101
Memorial or tribute gifts can also be made online at Give Now.
By giving to what matters, together we support student scholarships and fellowships, groundbreaking research and HU’s greatest needs.
We each play an integral part in our university’s legacy.
To set up your gift online please visit the Faculty and Staff Gives page.
An endowment gift is one of the most powerful ways you can support undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and exceptional faculty at HU. When you establish an endowment for the university, the investment provides sustainable financial support. Endowed funds can be created with a minimum of $50,000 payable over five years, or through a future gift from your estate.
Gifts to endowment will be administered as a permanent endowment under Harrisburg University Science & Technology’s policies.
