Gift Acceptance and Administration

The Gift Acceptance and Administration Policy, released by Development and Alumni Relations in December 2011, is a comprehensive collection of fundraising policies to govern the acceptance and administration of all philanthropic gifts to Howard University. These policies ensure donor intent, manage expectations about how a gift will be used, ensure that all gifts meet University needs, and safeguard the University‘s reputation. Topics covered include definitions of gifts and pledges, types of gifts accepted by Howard, planned gifts, issues related to donor privacy, and much more. Separate sections discuss naming guidelines, endowment fund management, and other topics of interest which may assist you in making important decisions regarding giving to Howard.
