HPU would not be the success it is without the essential scholarships that help to drive enrollment of new students and retain current students. 

Support HPU Campus Improvements

This fund will provide for critical upgrades to infrastucture and campus buldings for first-rate spaces to live, learn and play. 

Support the Honors Academy Renovation

A signature and prestigious feature of HPU is the Douglas MacArthur Academy of Freedom, home to the Guy D. Newman Honors Academy, where exceptional students train to become champions of freedom-loving people. Perhaps now more than ever, it is essential that the halls of this historic building be revitalized to share the ideals of individual liberty and political freedom.
