About

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.

We did it--TWICE!

Friends,

Thanks to you, we just charged past our second goal of 350 donors with nearly 8 hours left to go in our campaign. THANK you so much for your generosity! 

Cheers to our Hillsdale for its commitment to permanent truths that stand decidedly apart in today's world and for a strong alumni partnership to help us carry that permanence forward. 

We hope you're surrounded by friends and family tonight as we celebrate 2018 and look toward a new year. 

Thank you again. 

Sincerely, 

Your Alumni Office
