About

We are excited to celebrate the College's 175th Anniversary this month (December 4, 1844) and its long-standing mission to pursue truth, beauty and goodness through a sound liberal arts education. As beneficiaries of that education and of the thousands of people who make it possible, we are asking alumni to make a gift of any amount this giving season. 

We have set an ambitious goal to raise $2 million dollars from 700 alumni in the month of December. We are thrilled to have received a generous matching gift from David and Bonnie ('84) Hough. All alumni gifts will be matched $1 for $1 up to $500,000. The matching funds will be designated to the Hough's Dreams to Reality Scholarship for under-served students. Your gift, however, can be designated anywhere. We are fundraising for the Annual Fund during the Christmas season, which supports critical College functions like operations, scholarships, need-based loans and grants, faculty salaries, student organizations and athletics. Every dollar counts and we are grateful for each of you. 

Thank you for supporting the next generation of Hillsdale College students.  

Updates
We are almost there!

Thank you so much for your generous support of the College in our Alumni Annual Fund campaign.

We are 94 PERCENT to our goal of 700 alumni donors, with gifts still rolling in the mail and our online campaign running until midnight tonight. We are very excited at the widespread support from you all this giving season. Thank you. 

If you have a minute, consider sharing the campaign with your alumni friends to keep up the momentum. 

Happy New Year!
