Supporting the Vision of Humboldt State

Humboldt State University is an unparalleled center of learning for students who are determined to make a difference in our world. With a faculty devoted to teaching as its first priority, our students are offered excellent educational programs which extend far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Contributions from private sources are critical for providing necessary financial resources for our students, faculty and programs. Charitable gifts from alumni, friends, corporations and foundations enhance faculty quality, improve academic programs, create scholarships for students, and secure the means to allow the university to offer the best education possible.

The Office of University Advancement provides philanthropic leadership and program services to help Humboldt State University achieve its mission and goals. The Advancement office conducts four annual campaigns, facilitates major gifts and planned gifts, directs the University’s vital alumni and constituent engagement program and provides marketing and communications services to the campus community.
