Because Hamilton [Creates Opportunities]

As a donor, you play an important role in guiding Hamilton into the future.
— David Solomon ’84

Because Hamilton is a $400 million campaign to fulfill the promise represented in the students we attract to College Hill and the promises we make to those students during their search for a life-altering college education. We pledge to smart, ambitious students interested in a rigorous liberal arts education that Hamilton will enable them to:

  • Study What You Love
  • Be Who You Are (and be Respected for What You Believe)
  • Find Your Future

For students from families unable to pay Hamilton’s comprehensive fee, we make an additional promise:

  • If you are a U.S. student applying for fall admission, we will evaluate your application without considering your financial circumstances (i.e., need-blind admission), and, once you are accepted, we will meet your full demonstrated need for all four years.

Each of the priorities in this campaign will enable Hamilton to fulfill the promises it makes to the extraordinary students it enrolls.
