Graduate Gift Challenge

Last year 40% of Hampshire's newest alums made their first donation through the Graduate Gift Challenge. It's time for this year's graduates to make their mark.

Current Challenge: If 50% of the current graduating class donates any amount to the Hampshire Fund, an alum from the founding class of 1970 will donate $12,000.

The Graduate Gift Challenge (GGC), now in its tenth year at Hampshire College, was created to foster a culture of philanthropy among Hampshire's rising alumni. Contributions to the GGC demonstrate a belief in a Hampshire education and support of Hampshire's mission.


All gifts, all sizes, matter

The GGC is all about participation. When you make your gift, you have the power to choose where it goes. Whatever your passion is (financial aid, feeding the llamas, or Div III projects), your gift supports it.

How do I make a gift?

Contributing to the GGC is easy! Gifts can be made through a variety of methods:

  • Give now online
  • At GGC events, keep an eye out for Pub Nights!
  • Mailed to the Hampshire Fund
