Endowing a Fund
Hundreds of Hamilton alumni, parents, and friends have generously endowed funds that support our students, honor our faculty, establish new programs, and enhance the beauty of our campus. In so doing, they have established legacies that enrich Hamilton and honor their affection for the College.
Endowed scholarships ensure that financial aid will be available to future generations of deserving students.
Endowed professorships honor Hamilton’s most distinguished professors.
Endowed funds support student research, internships, and other vital learning opportunities.
Lectures, Library, Special Purpose
Endowed funds support special programs and foundational purposes.
When creating a new fund, Hamilton’s development staff members work closely with donors to ensure that both the donor’s intent and the College’s long-term needs are met. The capital necessary to establish an endowed fund at Hamilton may be provided through:
- outright contributions of cash,
- appreciated securities,
- real property,
- closely held stock,
- personal property, such as important works of art, rare books, manuscripts, or antiques.
Gifts to attain a specified fund minimum may be completed immediately or over time (up to five years), as well as through an estate plan.
