Lead by Example — Join the 1812 Leadership Circle

The 1812 Leadership Circle is a group of the College's most dedicated and generous alumni, parents and friends  -- providing more than 90 percent of total giving to Hamilton and inspiring others to deepen their philanthropy at all levels. These contributions form a living endowment that goes directly to the heart of a Hamilton education, supporting the quality of students, faculty and the environment in which they live and work.

Leadership Circle members take advantage of special opportunities to engage with the College throughout the year, including events and receptions with other 1812 members. They are also offered special updates on programs and activities at Hamilton, often from the College's senior administrators and volunteers.
