Donate $18.44
Give $18.44 and join the 1844 Society. The Society commitment is $18.44 per semester, and $184.40 within three years of your graduation, broken up into either three or six payments over three years. Members of the Society receive a pin and other swag, and a brick on the 1844 Society brick walk.

Partner with the 1844 Society and the Senior Class Officers and show your love to the 'Dale in 1,844 Minutes. We are excited and honored to help steward, preserve and perpetuate Hillsdale's great legacy.

We will be challenging our peers to give to the Ransom Dunn scholarship—a need-based scholarship that serves current students whose future at the College is threatened by financial hardship (although you may designate your gift to nearly anything).

We're so excited that the Hough Family Foundation has pledged to match, dollar for dollar, any increase in giving this year over last. So, if a student (or alumni) gave $0 last year, their donation would be matched 100%. If a student gave $5 last year, but gives $10 this year, their contribution will be matched by $5.

Last year, only 13% of our students gave over the entire year. Our goal today and tomorrow is for 13% of students to give in just 1,844 minutes. We can do it!

1,844 Seconds to Love the ‘Dale has kicked off and we look forward to seeing how much we can give back to the ‘Dale through our collective generosity. If you participate in the campaign as an advocate, you could win three AWESOME prizes:

An Amazon gift card worth $100

An iPad Mini

A Bookstore gift card worth a cool $100

Thank you!

Thank you SO much for supporting the 1,844 Minutes to Love the 'Dale campaign. In its first online campaign, the 1844 Society raised $2,200 to support fellow students at Hillsdale.

A Charger shout-out to Bill Gray, John Quint, John Papciak and Emily Stack Davis for supporting the campaign with matching gifts and challenges. Special thanks to Kenzi Dickhudt, whose online advocacy generated 98 clicks and 7 donations totaling more than $100.

We are also in the student union, promoting the campaign and taking cash gifts as well as helping people make online gifts. Please come by and have some Checker Records coffee, and grab an "I Gave" sticker to wear around campus and help us promote the day.
