    The Harding Fund

    Providing need-based scholarships and general campus needs


Your annual gift enhances our reputation through alumni participation, signifies quality, generates camaraderie, enriches the Harding experience, and makes a difference in the future of Harding University. Join us as we take alumni participation to the next level.

The Harding Fund makes an immeasurable impact in the classroom and on student life at Harding. Unrestricted gifts, big or small, from alumni, parents, and friends add to the Harding Fund. These gifts allow University leadership to direct funds to areas of greatest need. Gifts to the Harding Fund also meet unforeseen needs and support new opportunities as they emerge. We are so thankful for our faithful donors who continuously give to this important unrestricted fund and support students like 2020 graduate Christina Curtis.

You can make a difference

Gifts from donors reduce the cost of attendance by one-third and make it possible for many students, like Christina, who otherwise could not afford their Harding education to be here. Your generous donations make a significant impact in the transformation of Harding students by enabling their college experience in a faith-based environment.

These young men and women leave campus prepared to serve God, their families and neighbors through their faith and work. Every single gift, whether $20 or $2,000 or more, also counts toward alumni participation rates, showing the world that alumni value the education they received at Harding and want to share the Harding experience.

Give today to support The Harding Fund.

Parents & Family Giving

Harding is renowned for the enthusiasm and devotion of its students and alumni. Anyone who has ever eavesdropped on move-in day, strolled on the front lawn over Parents and Family Weekend, or watched the audience swell with pride during commencement knows how Harding benefits from an equally enthusiastic parent and family community.

We are fortunate that many parents show their appreciation for Harding by donating to The Harding Fund. Help the university your student loves by making a gift to the Harding Fund today!
