Alumni Annual Giving
The HPU Annual Fund is the University's annual giving campaign supported by alumni to serve students through scholarship, teaching innovations, improve diverse programs, facilities and student life activities.
There are many strategic opportunities to improve the quality of the HPU learning experience. The Annual Fund provides needed funds to seize these important opportunities. With your help, together we can make a difference for our HPU Students.
Gifts of any size greatly benefit HPU students and programs, participation is the key! Alumni-giving plays a big role in determining school ranking and the level of support we receive from foundations and corporations because it sends a powerful message of loyalty. By giving to HPU, alumni are helping the University and expressing the pride that they have for the degrees they have earned here.
How can I give to HPU? Here are a few simple ways:
Gifts of securities are an important component of giving to HPU, and often result in significant tax benefits to the donor. For example, donations of long-term appreciated securities are generally deductible at market value, regardless of the cost basis.
- Long-term appreciated securities are those that have been owned for more than one year, and have increased in value. If you itemize deductions, such a gift would entitle you to a federal income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift, up to a maximum deduction of 30% of your adjusted gross income for the year.
- Short-term securities are those held for less than one year. If you itemize, you will be entitled to a federal income tax deduction for only the purchase price of the securities.
- Depreciated securities are those that have declined in value since purchase. The University suggests that the donors sell them, take the tax loss, and donate the cash proceeds. This will provide the maximum tax benefits from the gift.
