How your support transforms our school

In recognition of the increasing number of alumni in the US, Huron has now acquired 501c 3 status in the US through the formation of the Huron University Foundation USA for alumni who wish to make donations to support Huron. This makes contributions to Huron that much more attractive for many alumni. Under the Canada - U.S .Tax Treaty, Huron may issue tax receipts directly which qualify for tax credit with the IRS, while some alumni prefer to do so through a 501 c 3 status organization, which we now have in place.
The Huron University Foundation USA also provides opportunities for corporations to receive tax credit for gifts to Huron. Thus, alumni who choose to ask the companies for whom they work to make matching gifts to Huron can do so knowing that their company will receive tax credit.
Established in 2014 through donations from US-based alumni of Huron University, and principally by the Directors of the Huron University Foundation U.S.A., the Huron Alumni USA Scholarship is awarded to an incoming first-year student from the USA registered full-time at Huron.
Huron alumni and friends living in the USA can support Huron and receive a charitable tax receipt. Under the Canada - U.S.Tax Treaty and through a 501 c 3 status organization, Huron may issue tax receipts which qualify for tax credit with the IRS.
