Student Foundation


Hornet Nation

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?

The Student Foundation will continue the Hornet Nation Campaign during, February 14-21: beginning on Founder’s Day! If you miss this opportunity, you can always give a gift to the Hornet Nation Campaign at the Sauder Alumni Center, across from the Towers Complex.

 How can you find us?

We will be updating our location all week via social media! We want to celebrate Homecoming and spring Campaign Week with our fellow Hornet Fans. Stop by and see us!
