Opportunities

  • Emory & Henry Fund (annual fund)

    Your contribution to the Emory & Henry Fund assists students who might otherwise be unable to pursue their educational aspirations. Your support not only helps students receive one of the finest educations in the country, but it prepares those students to be leaders dedicated to a better world for us all.

    An unrestricted gift to the Emory & Henry Fund is the most important gift you can make to the College as it will be used for operating expenses and the school's most pressing needs. Make a gift today and make a difference.

  • Planned Giving

    By making a planned gift through your assets or estate, you are providing for the future of the College and could potentially have a positive impact on your own financial preparations. Planned gifts can take many forms, including bequests, life insurance, real estate, personal property and appreciated securities.

  • Gifts of Stock

    If you have appreciated stock, it is easy to make a gift to Emory & Henry that will have favorable tax treatment. For example, a donor who gives a gift of common stock, held longer than one year, avoids capital gains taxation on the transfer, and the full value of the contribution goes to the College. The donor is able to take a charitable deduction using the full value of the gift and can claim up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) in the year the gift is made with up to five years to absorb the full deduction under the AGI ceiling.

    How to Make a Stock Transfer:                                                                                             

    Electronically Transferring Stock – The preferred, easiest, and fastest way to make a transfer of stock is electronically. Please contact Wells Fargo Advisors at the address below. In addition, please inform Emory & Henry’s Office of Institutional Advancement of the type of stock to be transferred and either the number of shares to be transferred or the approximate value of the stock. The date of the gift will be the date of the transfer, and the value will be the mean value of the stock on the date of the gift.

  • I–HEY

    For more than 50 years, alumni and friends have supported athletic programs at Emory & Henry by joining I–HEY (I Help Every Year). Contributions help teams purchase equipment and uniforms and pay for the expenses of travel to competitions. At Emory & Henry, we believe that athletes are students first. That is a valuable and rare notion among college athletic programs and one deserving of support from E&H fans of all stripes.

    As a Division III institution, Emory & Henry does not offer athletic scholarships. Our students participate in athletics because they have passion and heart. Thus, private financial support is especially important for our athletic program. Annual contributions from alumni, parents and friends are the lifeblood of E&H athletics.

    Contributions of any size are welcome and benefit the athletic program.  However a donation of:

    • $100 will entitle you to received two complimentary Varsity Cards, which will provide you with a general admission season pass of all home athletic events.
    • $325 will entitle you to receive two complimentary season passes for the VIP section of the stadium.
    • $1,500 will entitle you to receive two VIP passes and VIP parking pass for all home football and basketball games.  You will also be included as a member of the Patrick Henry Society, the College’s top donor recognition level.  All I-HEY contributors will receive free monthly athletic updates via e-mail as well.
  • Capital Initiatives

    • Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts

      On April 19, 2013, Emory & Henry broke ground on the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts. The new center will consist of 40,000 square feet of space for a 450-seat theater, a proscenium stage, a fly system for scene changes, a 150-seat Black Box theater, dressing rooms, production areas, gallery space, and a three-dimensional design studio. Reflecting architectural elements of the Georgian style that prevails on the historic E&H campus, the design for the two-story brick facility calls for an expansive columned portico, large windows and broad staircases. The facility also features handicap accessibility.
