The 1812 Leadership Circle is a dedicated group of alumni and friends of the College who make an annual gift of $2,500 or more. ​Given at one time, or in installments throughout the year, one's total contribution to Hamilton, including matching gifts, counts toward membership.

GOLD members are invited to join at special introductory levels: Alumni 1-4 years after graduation qualify for membership with gifts of $1,000 or more; alumni 5-9 years after graduation qualify with gifts of $1,500 or more. Learn more about the 1812 Leadership Circle...

Establish a Recurring Gift

Become a Member

Monthly giving may also allow you to make your yearly contribution at a leadership level because your gift is divided into monthly increments.

You can change or discontinue your recurring gift at any time by contacting the Alumni Office at 1-866-729-0315.

Benefits for you and Hamilton:
  • Recurring gifts are convenient and easy. You can establish a recurring gift online, with a contribution of as little as $5 per month.
  • Recurring giving is paperless and cost-effective, meaning your money will support students without delay.
  • Recurring gifts provide the Annual Fund with a reliable source of income that helps Hamilton make long-term commitments to top priorities, producing sustainable change over time.
