About Us

Since the 1984 deposit of $36,000 that funded the beginning of the NMHU Foundation, we have grown to more than $15 million in assets. The NMHU Foundation continues to award  scholarships and fund special projects and programs of the university.

Leadership by the Foundation Board resulted in the acquisition and building of the HIPs program and the replacement of the field at Perkins Stadium. Employee and alumni recognition ceremonies and awards are made possible each year from funding by the Office of Institutional Advancement and the Foundation and Alumni organizations.

Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, our Giving Tuesday 2017 campaign raised over $76,000, and our winter campaign was over $20,000!
