The President’s Club is Hillsdale College’s primary donor recognition and appreciation society. It began in 1969 with a handful of friends and has grown to include over 3,000 memberships. Since many memberships represent married couples, the number of individuals in The President’s Club tops 5,000 and includes some of the finest business and community leaders across the country. The growth of The President’s Club corresponds directly with the rise of Hillsdale College in national reputation, accompanied by its steadily escalating standards of academic and institutional excellence.
President’s Club members provide the financial strength that allows Hillsdale College to continue in its mission, free of federal taxpayer subsidies and government control.
Traditional membership in The President’s Club is established with a pledged commitment to provide a minimum of $15,000 over a maximum of ten years. We now feature a Young Alumni membership with a pledge commitment of $750 per year until age 30 and $1,500 per year thereafter until pledge completion. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond memberships are offered at commensurately higher minimums. President’s Club members may designate their gifts to any Hillsdale program or project of their choosing, and gifts may be in the form of cash, securities or various planned-giving instruments, such as gift annuities.

We are tremendously proud of our President’s Club members and humbled by their generous support. As a group, their devotion and commitment is truly exceptional among the supporters of all similarly-sized liberal arts colleges. Our goal is to merit that commitment, always.
