More Support Needed for the Hampden-Sydney Fund

Hampden-Sydney College's commitment to the education of young men is made viable through the annual support received from alumni, parents, and friends. Unrestricted gifts to the Hampden-Sydney Fund totaled $1.73 million last year. Those gifts allow Hampden-Sydney to recruit and retain a healthy student body from diverse geographic, socioeconomic, and academic backgrounds by funding merit-based and need-based financial aid.
