Class of 2018 Gift

This campaign ended on May 13, 2018, but you can still make a gift to Hillsdale College by clicking here!

It's that time in our lives we all knew would come. Our last month as Hillsdale College students. We arrived excited, nervous, intimidated, over-confident and, as Dr. Arnn would say, stupider. We are about to walk across the stage in just a few short weeks still excited, nervous and intimidated, but much less stupid. Still, if there's one thing we've learned in our 4 years at the 'Dale, it's that no matter how much we may know--there's so much more out there to grab and to learn. 

We have accomplished a lot, Class of 2018, and we have so much more in front of us. What defined you as a student at the 'Dale? What were those critical moments that helped shape you over the last 4 years? 

We hope you share them with us over the next few weeks, as we raise money for our Senior Class Gift. We are partnering with the 1844 Society to fundraise for the Ransom Dunn Scholarship--a need-based, emergency scholarship for returning seniors. Currently, FOUR seniors are receiving Ransom Dunn Scholarships to help ease their burden and make Hillsdale more possible for their last year, provided by the Society and the Class of 2017. 

As a class, we've received a total of $21,652,524 in gift aid and scholarship. Although are pockets aren't deep, we have a lot for which to be thankful and, collectively, can make a difference in paying this legacy forward. We are excited to join this worthy cause and help create a lasting legacy and impact on our peers through fundraising for this scholarship. 

We aim to raise $6,000 from at LEAST 50% of the Senior Class. This would be the highest giving percentage of a Senior Class to date so, LET'S GO!

***If you're a senior and you've already given back to the College this year--thank you. Your gift will count among the class percentage and, if you designated to the Ransom Dunn Scholarship, it will count toward the total gift amount.***
