The 2016-17 academic year is an extraordinary time for Hamilton. It’s the inaugural year of the College's 20th president, David Wippman, and we are welcoming the Class of 2020 to College Hill.
Coincidentally, it’s the season of a national election for president. Amid the quadrennial tumult, we hope everyone can agree that a gift made now to improve the educational experience of our students is a vote for Hamilton and a “ballot” well cast!
Hamilton allocates all gifts given through the Annual Fund to its top priorities, among them: the scholarship-aid budget to strengthen our bold need-blind promise; the expanding programs of the Career Center; and sustaining the teaching and practice of persuasive oral and written communication.
This year, we're also offering choice-based giving to the Annual Fund, allowing donors to direct their gift to an even wider range of areas in support of education on the Hill -- areas that might be personally very meaningful.
In this spirit, we’re mounting a mini-campaign, #Vote4Hamilton, hoping to garner gifts and pledges to the Annual Fund and culminating with a crescendo of support on Friday, November 4 -- making Hamilton truly an "electoral college"!
