Financial Support to Honor the Sesquicentennial

Honor Howard's Sesquicentennial by making a financial contribution of the 3 options list below.

See below for the ways to give.  Once you decide which donation option you prefer, proceed to the giving form.

150th Committee Activities

Our 150th year is an exciting time on Howard’s campus and across the country!

The events and activities for the Sesquicentennial are effectively managed through the efforts of the 150th Planning Committee. The makeup of the Committee includes faculty, staff, students, and volunteers who meet each week to discuss and develop topics, confirm program and event details across the country, and fundraise for the University.

In order to properly honor Howard University and highlight regional events, educational programs, and individual fundraisers throughout the year, the Committee needs ongoing financial support.

Please consider a gift to support the activities of the 150th Planning Committee.

Gift a Senior Campaign

Howard University’s commitment to making an excellent four-year college experience available to highly talented students regardless of family income is exceptional and unique among nationally ranked research universities.

Yet, while Howard’s 4-year student graduation rate is stronger than that of African-American students nationwide, graduation season illuminates a persistent concern: financial need is the number one barrier that students face to successfully complete their degree programs at Howard University.

Over the past several years, Howard University has significantly increased the level of financial aid it provides to students and their families. In 2015-2016, Howard awarded its students over $101 million in University-provided financial aid. Still, the stark reality is that Howard cannot meet the financial needs of every student.

The Gift a Senior Campaign was ignited to counter the financial deficits that prevent deserving students from graduating and completing their educational journey. Money should not hinder this life-changing achievement.

Today’s students need your financial support to complete their 2017 graduation.

Will you help a well-deserved senior graduate this year?

Area of Greatest Need

Consider a gift to the Howard University Annual Fund. As with any gift to Howard, your donation will academic excellence, research that saves lives, graduates who become leaders in their professions, and policies and programs that have and will continue to better communities on every continent. Your Annual Fund gift will also empower the University to fund much needed facilities and infrastructure projects, student support services, and other areas of need which promote operational excellence.

I’d like to help Howard University wherever the need is greatest with a gift to the Annual Fund.
