Support HPU

Meet Your Caller

Each year, we are grateful when you pick up the phone and choose to talk with one of our students. HPU students enjoy conversing with you and we appreciate the opportunity to update you on university news. 

You may think that your gift does not make a difference, but gifts of any size greatly benefit our HPU students and programs. 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 express the pride that they have for the degrees they have earned here. 

HPU strives to offer their students the best education possible. Your contribution will help preserve high standards and quality programs for current and future students.
