The College's educational mission is intimately connected with the world at large. Your contributions to Hamilton positively impact our society for generations to come and sustains the College's ability to transform the lives of students.
Unrestricted Annual Fund gifts are especially valuable because they allow Hamilton to address immediate priorities and enhance programs not covered by the endowment or other sources of income. Without your generosity the lives of Hamilton students are diminished. With it almost anything is possible.
Annual gifts support the operating budget of the College and are put to use immediately. Their impact is magnified - a gift of $100 is equal to the revenue from a $2000 endowment. Gifts provide critical resources for scholarships, faculty salaries, academic programs, student services, athletic programs as well as co-curricular programming … and much more. The 2012-13 Annual Fund goal of $6.6 million equals the income from an endowment total of $132 million — more than the total endowment of many small colleges!
