Recently, Heritage Christian University received a huge, unexpected blessing—a gift of $1,000,000! The donor, who is from North Mississippi, has designated the majority of this money to be put into an endowed scholarship fund. With this restricted endowment, the money is invested so it will bless our students for many years to come. 

Although HCU received this overwhelming gift, we still have immediate needs in other areas. The Teachers Fund supports our knowledgeable faculty who train our students to be effective communicators of the gospel. The Heritage Fund helps with everyday expenses of running the university so that our students are comfortable and well-equipped for learning. 

HCU is a donor-driven university, meaning we would not survive without our donors’ generous support. If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to Christian education this holiday season, please call 256-766-6610 or give securely online at
