The Hamilton College Town-Gown Fund was created in 2001 by anonymous donors to foster goodwill and communication among the College and residents of the Town of Kirkland and the Village of Clinton. Since its founding, the endowed fund has received more than $1.2 million in gifts and distributed nearly $1.1 million in grants.

Each year, the income earned from investing those donations is used to make grants to organizations in the Town of Kirkland. As stipulated in the agreement that established the Fund, grants can only be made to organizations and agencies serving the Town of Kirkland and the Village of Clinton, with a primary focus on education.
