Through 242 years, Hampden-Sydney College continues to offer an exceptional experience for young men.  Philanthropic support from alumni, parents, friends, and other organizations makes the "atmosphere of sound learning" a continued reality for our students. 

Unrestricted gifts to the Hampden-Sydney Fund totaled $2,536,699 in the 2016-2017 fiscal year, a record high for the College.  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.

Thank you to each donor who provides the resources necessary to ensure our students have opportunities to achieve excellence at Hampden-Sydney College.
