Young Alumni Giving Society

The Young Alumni Giving Society honors alumni who choose to financially support their alma mater within 10 years of graduation. An annual gift of any size reflects your firm belief in the value of Christian higher education. Additionally, it is an investment in Houghton students who are being shaped into people of character, competence and conviction. Gifts can be designated for the Student Scholarship Fund or to support other priority projects and programs.

When young alumni describe their Houghton experience, one of the words that surfaces repeatedly is “community.” The Young Alumni Giving Society reflects this spirit of community as recent graduates support and encourage those now experiencing their own transformative journeys.

As a token of our appreciation, members of the Young Alumni Giving Society receive regular email updates. These include campus news and upcoming events with special attention to young alumni interests. They also include spotlight stories featuring current students and members of the Young Alumni Giving Society.

We invite you to become a member of the Young Alumni Giving Society today. Your gifts will both symbolically and tangibly make a difference in the lives of Houghton students and will help ensure the continuing success of your alma mater. Make your gift now, or call the Office of Advancement at 585.567.9340.

In addition to your giving, we also invite you to stay actively engaged in the life and mission of Houghton University. Connect with Office of Alumni Engagement at You can also:
