Foundations, corporations, and other donors scrutinize the percentage of alums who give. It stands as a vote of confidence for the College from those who know it best.
"When alums and parents give to Hampshire, we send a clear message that those who know the College best are investing in its mission and its future. Our donations to Hampshire mean more opportunities for current and future students to attend a college that fosters a lifelong passion for learning, inquiry, and ethical citizenship.Your gift inspires a new generation of students to be passionate about not just learning, but also justice, and to want to effect positive change in the world. Your gift enables Hampshire to continue being a transformative influence in higher education—and an important alternative in a crowded field of competitive colleges." -- Ellen Sturgis 77F, former chair of the Alumni Advisory Group
