Foundations and Corporations

When you partner with Henderson State University, you’re making a wise decision for your corporation or private philanthropic foundation, as well as a wise investment in the future. Your support helps Henderson fulfill its mission to provide a learning environment that prepares students for a lifetime of intellectual and personal growth in an increasingly global society. This mission bridges students’ academic aspirations to career success by integrating professional studies and the liberal arts. At the same time, you advance your strategic positioning, mission and goals, and gain recognition on behalf of your employees, customers and communities. Henderson State places a high level of importance on these mutually beneficial partnerships and works diligently to align your objectives with our key strategic priorities.  

Here are a few of the many ways your support can be designated:

Scholarships
By offering scholarships that are relevant to the interests of your corporation or foundation, you deepen your ties with some of Henderson’s best and brightest students and secure a prominent position in attracting these extraordinary individuals to your corporation or professional field of interest.

Endowed Chairs and Professorships
You can make a meaningful and lasting impact through the endowment of a faculty chair, named in honor of your company, its founders or executives. You can also support remarkable research that is important to your company’s long-term strategy.

Facilities and Capital Improvements
By giving in this way, you invest in Henderson’s students, faculty and programs. You also create a permanent and highly visible contribution that can lead to naming opportunities for research labs, centers or buildings on campus.

In-Kind Gifts
By contributing equipment, supplies, software, hardware and other such donations to Henderson, you benefit the University and could gain beneficial tax deductions for your corporation or foundation, similar to your cash gifts. 

Matching Gifts
By establishing a matching gift program, you allow Henderson State alumni employees and friends to leverage their support for the University.
