Donor Recognition Societies

Recurring gifts

Recurring gifts enable you to provide consistent annual or monthly support for Hamilton by credit card. Your gift is divided into manageable increments, which allows you to maximize the impact of your giving to the College while avoiding a large, one-time expense.

Set up a recurring gift

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.
  • Monthly giving may also allow 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.
  • 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.
  • Your gift will automatically renew each year, meaning you won't receive any more solicitations for the remainder of the year.

1812 Leadership Circle
