Ways to Give to HSU
Special University Initiatives
You may give specifically to a program/cause that relates directly to your (or a family members) college experience. While any giving opportunity can be requested/searched in any of the ways to give; we have created some opportunities for programs that have multiple needs:

Memorial and Tributes
Memorial or tribute gifts provide you with the opportunity to recognize those who have made an impact on your life. Honor a family member, friend, classmate, or faculty member with a gift in support of an area or program of importance to that person.This type of gift is a sincere way to celebrate the life and accomplishments of a relative, friend, teacher or student. You can do this online, by mail, or call us at (325) 670-1260 to make arrangements.
Gifts of Securities, Real Estate and Personal Property
Transferring securities, either stocks or bonds, allows you to make a gift to the university and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value. You also may avoid paying a capital gains tax on your charitable contribution.
Gifts of real estate can have special benefits for both the donor and the recipient. You may give real estate as a current gift and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift. Gifts must meet certain criteria in order to be accepted by the university.
Stocks and mutual fund gifts are another way to give to HSU. Not only is the gift tax deductible, but you may also avoid capital gains tax on the security. For details click
