Young Founders

Society of Founders at HSC

Become a Founder and become a leader today.

As a young alumnus, you are the future of Hampden-Sydney, but you don't have to wait to become a leader. Hampden-Sydney is your alma mater for life, so it's important to invest in her future today. Your leadership as a Young Founder will help preserve and enhance the prestige of Hampden-Sydney's mission of "forming good men and good citizens."

The benefits of becoming a Founder:

  • A parking pass to the Founders tailgating lot at all home football games (Founders Lot passes are not issued to students.)
  • An invitation to the Annual Founders Weekend
  • A handmade lapel pin indicating membership in the Society of Founders

How is a gift to the Hampden-Sydney Fund used?

Gifts to the Hampden-Sydney Fund are used to cover the College's greatest expenses: scholarships and finanical aid, student instruction, and student services. When these needs are met—and with your help, exceeded—our students are able to have the best experience possible, something every alumnus benefits from.
