More Support Needed for the Hampden-Sydney Fund

Hampden-Sydney College's "atmosphere of sound learning" would not be possible without the consistent support of donors to the Hampden-Sydney Fund. Unrestricted gifts from alumni, parents, and friends totaled over $2.2 million last year. The Hampden-Sydney Fund is a primary source of financial aid and merit-based scholarships which helps to recruit the next generation of well-rounded Hampden-Sydney students. Through gifts to the Hampden-Sydney Fund, we are able to offer financially viable options to students from diverse geographic, socioeconomic, and academic backgrounds.

The Hampden-Sydney Fund also provides support for student research projects, technology enhancements across campus, professional development for faculty, and campus beautification. These programs and projects are some of the core components that prepare our students to be ‘good men and good citizens' long after they complete their time on The Hill.
