Annual Giving

Hamilton's Annual Fund provides a meaningful, yearly opportunity to affirm your support for the College's mission, professors and students. Because gifts are used during the fiscal year in which they are received, your philanthropy has an immediate impact on the quality of education on College Hill.

Your Gift, Your Choice

Direct your contribution to one of six areas described below. Choose the area of College life that is most personally meaningful to you.

Scholarship Aid

Help Hamilton keep its need-blind admission promise by ensuring that the College has the resources to admit the best possible candidates, regardless of family finances. The entire community benefits when the most talented and deserving students have access to the superb education that Hamilton provides.

Academic Programs

Support the heart of Hamilton’s mission — teaching and learning in the liberal arts tradition. Your generosity will touch all students on the Hill by ensuring that they can explore the breadth and depth of more than 50 areas of study.

Career Center

Help students find their futures. The Career Center annually offers more than 250 programs for students exploring “what comes next” after Hamilton. Your contribution enables students to pursue paths that lead to personal and professional fulfillment.


Provide opportunities for all Hamilton students to participate whether it's on a varsity, club or intramural team or in basic fitness and wellness programming. You also help ensure that all of our varsity student-athletes have the training and equipment to compete successfully in NESCAC, one of the most competitive leagues in the nation.


Support the full range of arts opportunities on the Hill, from performances and poetry readings to provocative exhibitions. Hamilton’s arts programs are inclusive, and that makes them distinctive.

Where Need is Greatest

Allow Hamilton to use your donation for its highest priorities. This crucial flexibility enables College leadership to ensure that students and faculty have what they need to create and sustain a liberal arts educational experience that is second to none.
