Hampton University Announces Raises For All Employees
Stay up to date with the latest.
Thanks in large part to an extremely generous gift from a celebrated novelist, Hampton University in Hampton has recently announced that it will be giving 5 percent raises to all its employees.
This comes after the university had a record-breaking year in fundraising, including its largest ever donation of $30 million from philanthropist and novelist McKenzie Scott last summer. Scott is the world’s 20th wealthiest person, and a signatory of The Giving Pledge, a pledge by extremely wealthy people to give away vast sums of their wealth.
About the donation, Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey said, “This pure act of benevolence is clearly a game changer and it could not have come at a better time.”
