Hampden-Sydney Students Say Thank You
Hampden-Sydney College had an exceptional fundraising year thanks to our donors-parents, alumni, faculty, staff, friends, and students-just like you. We are grateful for the support we receive from our valued donors.
For fiscal year 2011-2012, we exceeded the $2,226,000 Hampden-Sydney Fund goal. Total gifts to the College were $8 million, with the Board of Trustees contributing a generous 33% ($2.6 million) of all giving. Alumni contributed a total of $4.5 million and increased their average gift to $712 from $652 the previous year. Members of the Parents Council gave $64,110 with 97% participation. Finally, the total number of donors to the College increased to 4,140 from 4,035 the previous year.
Every gift has an impact on our students, and they would like to say thank you. Please enjoy this video from them.
