Alums, parents, and friends have come together like never before at this pivotal moment. To pursue a re-imagined, revitalized Hampshire, we must keep pushing the boundaries – together. That starts with an unprecedented fundraising campaign – $20 million in cash by June 2020, and $100 million over the next five years.
This is a full community effort and your support is vital.
Our current and future students are at the center of the developing vision, and so are our core values. Today’s world needs more Hampshire thinkers, innovators, problem solvers, and experimenters. More graduates with ethics, empathy, and a commitment to social justice.
Now is our time. We can make history together.
I'm honored and humbled to co-chair Hampshire’s development effort. For the College to survive, we’ll all need to dig deep. Really deep. The formula for my own giving has been: think of a number that really ‘hurts.’ Then multiply it by four—for each of the years we need to raise the total sum of between $80M and $100M. It will hurt. But it’s the only way. I’m really ‘hurting,’ but a strange peace and satisfaction have also stolen over me, born not just from this existential threat, but from all that I realize I owe Hampshire for where I am and who I am.
