Supporting Hillsdale

Hillsdale College is widely recognized as one of the finest, private liberal arts colleges in America.

Hillsdale does not accept federal or state taxpayer funding for any purpose, including student financial aid. Abiding by the motto, “Pursuing Truth and Defending Liberty Since 1844,” the College upholds its independence with the help of private funding—gifts, pledges, planned gifts and grants—that provides gift income to meet annual expenses not covered by tuition revenues and endowment earnings.

You can help ensure that this unique college exists for generations of students yet to come, whether you choose to get involved or are looking for ways to give. Please join us in our noble mission.
