The Annual Fund for Hillsdale

This campaign ended on January 01, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Hillsdale College by clicking here!

Meeting the general operating needs of Hillsdale College remains crucial to our ability to maintain our independence and academic excellence. Since revenue from tuition covers just 30 percent of the College’s total revenue, the Annual Fund enables us to balance the budget each year, raising the operating income needed over and above revenues through tuition, student fees, and endowment earnings. Hillsdale must raise $14,118 per student through the Annual Fund to meet operating needs. 

Here are a few key areas the Annual Fund supports:

  1. Our private Student Independence Grant and Loan Fund to replace federal and state aid. The projected cost of replacement for the 2018-2019 academic year is $5.58 million for approximately 600 students.
  2. Private merit-based and need-based scholarships
  3. Professor Salaries
  4. Charger athletic programs
  5. Campus improvements and maintenance

Success in meeting the Annual Fund goals ensures Hillsdale’s ongoing growth in excellence. As a former Hillsdale student and a beneficiary of its Annual Fund, we hope you'll consider helping us meet this need this giving season and expanding the possibilities for current students. 

No matter the size of the gift, each Annual Fund pledge, stock transfer, or cash gift contributes to the strength of our mission as a liberal arts college and enhances our ability to provide a quality education for students who seek it, now and for years to come.
