About

As the summer winds down and fades into fall, we at Hillsdale are looking forward to another year of challenge (and another year of rejoicing). As a Charger athlete, you know personally the commitment and discipline required to compete athletically and academically at Hillsdale. And, you know the necessary support and commitment required from so many others—coaches, teammates, faculty, staff, donors—to help our athletes and teams find success on their fields and courts.

So, we are challenging our Charger athletes to give back to support the programs that helped develop their character, their work ethic, and their perseverance to pursue a life of commitment and purpose.

Our students’ ability to compete well depends on the support of alumni—and as Chargers we should be leading the pack! Every dollar given toward the athletic department or a particular sport counts as participation in the second annual Charge Ahead Challenge!

Will you please join us as we support and inspire our Charger Athletes in their pursuit of excellence? Collectively, we can make a great impact on the programs that benefited us. Together, we can charge on to victory in the blue and white way. 

Updates
Almost there!

Thank you SO much to those of you who have given and also shared this campaign with your Charger friends. We are grateful! 


We are seventy percent to our goal of 233 donors with just a few hours left. If we reach our goal, we will unlock an additional $10,000 for the Athletic Department, thanks to a generous challenge from an anonymous friend of the College.


One last push to share this campaign with your friends via email or social media if you haven't already would have a huge impact. And, if you create an account, you can actually track your unique impact!


We took a quick, fun video of some of our staff and student-athletes working out today and getting pretty excited at the campaign progress, thanks to your generosity. 


With gratitude, 


The Athletic & Alumni Offices
