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 238-year-old mission of "forming good men and good citizens."

The benefits of becoming a Founder:

  • A parking pass to the Founders tailgating lot at home football games*
  • An invitation to Founders Weekend (March 27-29, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa, and Marina)
  • A handmade lapel pin indicating membership in the Society of Founders

    *Founders Lot passes are not issued to students.

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.
