Why, Where, How

Every gift matters, regardless of size. Every gift provides more than financial support for Heidelberg University. Giving metrics are often used as a way to gauge an institution’s significance in terms of its national ranking. These rankings are important to prospective students and their families, who use them as a tool in choosing a college, and to foundations looking to support higher education. All gifts from alumni – at any dollar amount – help elevate our rate of participation.

Why Give

Donors who make gifts to Heidelberg do so for very personal, very different reasons. We want you to know that whether your gift is large or small, you are investing in Heidelberg’s future. Our success – now and in the future – is measured by our collective family of donors whose belief in us is so strong that they are moved to make a difference.

Where to Give

You make the choice! Because it’s important to us that you align your gift to Heidelberg to what matters most to you, we encourage you designate your gift to any area of the university.

Of course, one of those choices is unrestricted giving. When you make an unrestricted gift, you enable us to assign your gift to the area where it’s needed most. This flexibility gives us the opportunity to support all areas of the university from students to faculty to programs across the board. We’re here to help you get the most impact from your gift.
