Every Hamiltonian has been the direct beneficiary of the generations of donors who preceded them. Through your gift to the Parents Fund you support the College's most critical and immediate needs, including scholarships, faculty recruitment and retention, and facilities maintenance and renovation. Your gift moves Hamilton forward as it honors its past. Thanks for your generosity!
Recurring gifts enable you to provide consistent annual or monthly support for Hamilton by credit card. You will not receive mail or telephone solicitations, and your recurring gift will remain in effect until you notify Hamilton of any changes, including new credit card information. Please e-mail or call 1-866-729-0315.
The Monthly Giving program allows donors to easily make their gift to the Hamilton Annual Fund in regular monthly installments from a credit card or checking/savings account.
Monthly contributions provide the College with an on-going, reliable source of funding. Gifts made through this program reduce our administrative costs and allow more of each gift to be used immediately to support Hamilton's top priorities. Monthly gifts are also "greener" by cutting down on paper and gas and emissions produced by mailings.
Enrolling in the program means you won't have to worry about writing and sending a check, and the number of phone and mail reminders you receive from the College will decrease. If you choose to allow deductions to continue from year to year, you will be counted among Hamilton’s most loyal and valued donors and be recognized for your participation in the Honor Roll of Donors. Monthly Giving also allows you to make your yearly contribution at a leadership level because your gift is divided into manageable monthly increments. Please consider joining The 1812 Leadership Circle. Monthly amounts may need to be adjusted during the first year if enrollment begins after July to ensure the desired giving level is achieved. The College's fiscal year is July 1 – June 30.
