Henry Carver Fund


Henry Carver A hook for a hand. A brilliant mind that inspired students. A steely determination. A singular focus. Traits of the man whose name is synonymous with the earliest days of Bloomsburg University.

Henry Carver, the first principal of what would become Bloomsburg University, saw a need for an institution to provide a better education than was currently available. Carver’s determination and dedication played a large part in transforming the growing private school into a state normal school. In five years, Carver laid the foundation for what would become a state university.

Today’s students face challenges

Henry Carver Fund Immediate, Unexpected, Challenges Henry Carver would understand. Perhaps Henry Carver’s perseverance came from experiences as a teacher. Perhaps his strength came from his lifelong battle with his own personal demons. One thing is for sure: Henry Carver’s faith in Bloomsburg’s success never wavered.

And so, in honor of Henry Carver's determination, the Henry Carver Fund at Bloomsburg University is dedicated to making an immediate, significant impact on today’s students and supporting the best educational experience possible. To meet student needs, whatever those needs may be, right now. Make a difference. Support the Henry Carver Fund with a gift today.

Every dollar counts ...

Nancy Vasta As I read about the impact of students, I’m reminded once again that every dollar you give really does count. Their stories are what inspire me to give, and I hope they do the same for you.

Especially in these challenging economic times, your donation is needed and appreciated more than ever. With declining state revenues and increasing levels of student debt, fundraising is critical. Your donation helps students and the entire BU community overcome these challenges.

Thanks to you, we raised more than $500,000 in 2010-11. I hope you’ll join me in taking our fundraising efforts to the next level. Please donate today to the Henry Carver Fund and help us change lives and make a positive impact on our communities.
