Class Agents play a vital role in the life of the College by reaching out to their peers to ask for support of the Hamilton’s Annual Fund. Those gifts enable Hamilton to provide scholarship aid, support for faculty members and their programs, and numerous activities throughout the academic year. Class agents also work with staff to communicate the news and needs of the College effectively with classmates, and gather and relay alumni news to the College.
All Class Agents are expected to fully in engage in at least two outreach periods each fund year – one at the end of the calendar year and another at the end of fiscal year. However, Agents are welcome to reach out to their classmates at any point during the year.
• Philanthropic support is an important way to demonstrate commitment to the College's mission. As such, Class Agents are expected to lead by example and make a gift to Hamilton according to what their own personal circumstances will allow.
• Assist staff in identifying and soliciting potential donors from your class.
• Of course, the role requires volunteers to respect the confidentiality of alumni giving history.
• Participate in regional and on-campus alumni activities whenever possible.
