Class Gift 2015

What is the Hornet Nation Campaign?

The Emporia State Student Foundation manages the Hornet Nation Campaign and promotes a culture of philanthropy among students, alumni and fans! The money raised for the Hornet Nation fund supports the things that we, as students, feel are important for the campus.

Why should I give to Hornet Nation?

Your gift to the Hornet Nation Campaign benefits current and future Hornets and their experience at Emporia State! Currently, the Student Foundation allocates money from the Hornet Nation Fund to a senior class gift, the Emporia Symphony Concert and student priorities and scholarships. In this way, you can consider your gift to the Hornet Nation Campaign an investment in the Hornet Lifestyle! 

How can I get an official Hornet Nation Campaign t-shirt?

The official Hornet Nation t-shirt is given as a token of our appreciation to all Hornet fans that make a gift of $18.63 or more.

 Why $18.63?

We enjoy celebrating our milestones at Emporia State University! The Student Foundation chose $18.63 as a way to celebrate the year that Emporia State University was founded!

 When can I give a gift and receive a t-shirt?

You can give a gift and receive a t-shirt anytime! Visit to make a gift to the Hornet Nation. The Student Foundation will hold their spring Hornet Nation Campaign April 27th through May 1st, 2015.
