Why Forester Fund Matters!
Did you know that over 90% of Huntington University’s undergraduate student population receives scholarship dollars directly from Forester Fund? Odds are that if you ever attended Huntington University (or Huntington College or Central College), you probably received institutional aid from the general scholarship fund, renamed “Forester Fund” in 2012.
“It’s not always easy to talk about giving,” said Marcy Hawkins, Director of the Forester Fund. “It can make people uncomfortable or nervous, sometimes people feel like they don’t have the funds to give back, even though they want to. But we don’t want to shy away from a topic that’s this important just because it’s challenging. This isn’t about raising money for a building or property — though those things are necessary! — this is about making it possible for students to receive an education at Huntington University.”
