The Foundation is committed to cultivating lasting relationships with alumni, friends, corporations and other organizations that have a passion for Fort Hays State University and want to continue its legacy of excellence. Our donors have an impact on all facets of university life, and their support continues to translate into success for students and the FHSU learning environment.
The FHSU Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 1945. Our mission is to support and advance the university by actively seeking monetary gifts and bequests and to receive and administer those contributions in a prudent manner in accordance with donors' wishes.
The Foundation is the fundraising arm of Fort Hays State University. We raise
and manage all funds that are entrusted to us for the benefit of various
needs in support of the university. While the Foundation works closely with
FHSU to support its initiatives, it is legally separate from the university
and is governed by a board of trustees and supervised by a chief executive
The Foundation is more actively touching the lives of our friends and alumni. Our goal is to match our donors’ interests
with a wide variety of initiatives across campus.
