This campaign ended on December 05, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Hillsdale College by clicking here!

In honor of Hillsdale's birthday today, the 1844 Society aims to raise $500 in one day to support the Ransom Dunn scholarship. 

The Ransom Dunn scholarship supports current students who are experiencing particular financial hardship and helps their College experience become a little more feasible. Last year, in partnership with the Class of 2017, we were so excited to raise nearly $10,000 throughout the academic year. Every dollar counts--it all adds up! We currently have 4 seniors receiving the Ransom Dunn Scholarship, and were able to support 3 seniors last year. 

Supporting the Ransom Dunn scholarship is a great, tangible way we can directly support our friends here while also giving back to the College--a place from which we have greatly benefited. 

If you prefer, you can always designate your gift to another student club or organization or academic department that you want to impact--every dollar counts and, collectively, we can make a difference for our peers by supporting the things in which we are particularly invested.
