Get Involved

No matter where you live today, you’re never too far away to get involved and give back to your alma mater. Volunteer, connect with current students, give back, and get involved. We want to hear from you.

Support Hillsdale because you believe in everything that’s good and true and beautiful. Because you know firsthand the power of a liberal arts education. Because professors believed heart and soul in the person you could become. Because you believe in the principles of self-government and integrity that have exemplified Hillsdale from the very beginning.

As you know, Hillsdale does not accept even one penny of federal or state financial aid for grants, loans, or scholarships. Our deeply established tradition of philanthropy ensures we are not beholden to government regulations that would conflict with our education mission.

The generous support of our alumni and donors is transforming lives every day—and helps make Hillsdale significantly more affordable than many of our peers. You’ll be happy to know that our loan program has one of the lowest default rates in the nation—powerful testimony to both our carefully tailored financial aid packages and the character of Hillsdale students.

You can make a gift in support of day-to-day life at Hillsdale. Or earmark your gift to honor a favorite professor, department, or campus organization. Your gift makes a real difference here.
