Excellence Every Day: Sarah Dix Hamlin Birthday Challenge

This campaign ended on November 28, 2017, but you can still make a gift to The Hamlin School by clicking here!

A pioneer, an educator, an entrepreneur, and an activist - Sarah Dix Hamlin was unafraid to challenge the status quo and educate girls to meet the challenges of their time.

In honor of Sarah Hamlin's 173rd birthday we challenge at least 73 alumnae and parents of alumnae to make a gift to Hamlin in two weeks.

For 14 days, all donations will support Excellence Every Day, Hamlin's annual initiative to propel excellence in education, program innovation, teaching, and inclusion.

Gifts will also support Hamlin's financial assistance program. A crucial component of excellence in our community, socio-economic diversity is made possible only when the most extraordinary girls have access to a Hamlin education, regardless of their family's ability to pay. 

Every gift counts - no matter the size - and will help us reach our goal of 73 gifts by Sarah Hamlin's 173rd birthday on November 27!
