We want to celebrate the IMPACT you, our donors, can have on future generations of Houghton students. In this moment, you have the opportunity to make an investment in the life of a budding pastor, a future teacher, a young refugee, a hopeful equine therapist, an aspiring scientist or other individual projects God has placed on your heart. Your gift can mean generations of IMPACT for a diverse array of future Houghton College graduates spreading Kingdom impact around the world to the glory of God.
The Office of Advancement is available to come alongside you and help you determine the best use of the resources God has given you to benefit the future of Houghton College. Along with your sacrificial commitment during this specific campaign, we invite you to consider a legacy gift as well. We stand ready to help you explore options that will not only carry out philanthropic goals beyond your dreams but also benefit yourself and your loved ones.
Now is the time. Now is the moment of IMPACT. Are you ready?

ENDOWING A SCHOLARSHIP, CHAIR OR PROGRAM IS AN IDEAL WAY TO LEAVE A LASTING IMPACT ON THE FUTURE OF HOUGHTON COLLEGE.
Endowment funds provide a continuous, annual flow of critical financial support to Houghton College. The initial gift is protected and invested wisely, and grows in perpetuity. The interest generated provides financial support across the campus. The Office of Advancement helps donors align giving objectives to create the greatest impact, and works with donors to devise creative ways to maximize giving.
LEGACY GIFTS ARE POWERFUL WAYS DONORS CAN MAKE FAR MORE SUBSTANTIAL GIFTS THAN THEY EVER BELIEVED POSSIBLE.
