    Why Give?

Recurring Gifts

If all 12,000 of our active alumni partnered with us at $25 a month, that would add up to over $3.5M each year. If we all give even a little, collectively it adds up to a whole lot, and makes a huge Kingdom impact for Christian higher education at HPU! Please prayerfully consider becoming a monthly partner.

  • $10/month = $120/year
  • $25/month = $300/year
  • $41.67/month = $500/year
  • $83.34/month = $1,000/year
  • $100/month = $1,200/year
  • $157.42/month = $1,889/year
  • $500/month = $6,000/year

Matching Gifts

Your gift can have double or even triple the impact!

Matching gifts provide you with an easy way to make your gift reach further for the students at Howard Payne University. Your company, your spouse’s company or even a company that you are retired from may potentially double, or even triple, your gift. Your support directly impacts the next generation of Christ-centered leaders at HPU!

Planned Giving

It is never too early to think about establishing a future gift. With a planned gift, you can still provide for your family, receive tax benefits, generate income, and leave a legacy at Howard Payne University.

The Robnett Legacy Society, named in honor of Howard Payne University founder Dr. John D. Robnett, was established to recognize former students and friends of HPU who desire to invest in the future of quality Christian education. Generous planned gifts from past alumni and friends have advanced the University by addressing physical needs, enlarging the University’s endowment, and supporting student scholarships. The thoughtful plans of individuals who join the Robnett Legacy Society will help ensure the work begun in 1889 by Dr. Robnett will continue to benefit HPU students for decades to come.

All you need is a plan. If you are not yet a member but would like to join those who are investing in HPU’s future, we encourage you to consider a planned gift and join The Robnett Legacy Society.
