Recurring Gifts

The Recurring Gift Program makes supporting Hampton convenient for the donor, and even more beneficial to Hampton.  This option allows donors to split their total yearly gift into manageable monthly installments allowing Hampton to immediately put these gifts to work throughout the academic year.  With your authorization, your credit card or checking account will be automatically debited in the amount you designate at the same time each month.   

Consider the benefits of enrolling in Hampton University’s Recurring Gift Program:

  • You will provide a reliable source of funding for our students, faculty and programs.
  • Your contribution happens automatically from month to month and year to year until you tell us to change it.
  • Once your recurring gift is set, you can forget calendar reminders.
  • You can maximize your gift's impact in manageable increments.
  • Payments are automatic and will appear on your credit card or bank statement.

To schedule monthly gifts through our Recurring Gift Program using your credit or debit card visit http://donateto.hamptonu.edu.

Matching Gifts
There are thousands of companies nationwide that will match an employee’s charitable contribution -- often doubling or even tripling the amount of the original gift.  In some cases, companies even match gifts made by retired employees.  To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please use our convenient search engine.

Gift Pledges
Hampton University welcomes your gift through a pledge-a formal statement of intention to make a gift to the university.  With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time, allowing you to give more generously than you originally may have considered.  What is more, each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax charitable deduction.  For more information, please contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at (757) 727-5425

Making a gift of Appreciated Securities/Stock to Hampton University such as stocks, mutual fund shares, or other appreciated assets can be a great tax-efficient method for making a gift to Hampton. In most instances, you can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the gift and avoid any capital gains tax. If you have further questions, or would like assistance in making a gift of securities/stock, please contact the Office of Development at (757) 727-5356 and we would be happy to assist you.
