Your support is vital to the mission of HGSE. As we seek to prepare leaders who will have a transformative impact on all areas of education, we need the support of our alumni and friends. Our Development and Alumni Relations team can help you determine the best way to make your gift, and answer your questions about different types of gifts.

  • Making an annual gift of unrestricted support (HGSE Fund)
  • Providing multi-year funding for research on a particular topic, or to provide fellowships and professorships (Major Gifts)
