Program Overview

NOTICE (For the remainder of 2020): Due to Covid-19, our programs and services have moved to virtual online learning and mix-hybrid instructions. Our programs are not interrupted so that we can continue to serve our clients.

The Hattiesburg University Foundation was founded in 2003 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. In 2007, the IRS granted our 501(c)(3) tax exemption. Due to growth and expansion, the Hattiesburg University Foundation, as a tax-exempt, non-profit foundation, moved its operations and headquarters to Atlanta, Georgia. The foundation still serves the Metropolitan Statistical Areas of Hattiesburg, Mississippi (part-time), and Atlanta, Georgia (College Park specifically, full-time).

The mission of the Hattiesburg University Foundation is "to serve humanity through human philanthropy via impacting the benchmarks of education, housing, literacy, and economic/community development." Since our founding and now expansion to two states: Mississippi and Georgia, the Hattiesburg University Foundation has served hundreds of adult learners through literacy, English skills, college readiness, etc. Currently, as a small charity, there is a waiting list for our innovative programs and benchmarks. However, the foundation, although small, will strive to serve all of our constituents and guests and/or recommend additional programs and services from various stakeholders.
