The Hotchkiss School is supported by the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends through a variety of ways: unrestricted annual gifts to The Hotchkiss Fund to support today's needs, capital gifts to further progress on longer-term priorities such as financial aid, faculty support, and residential life; and planned gifts to support future generations.
We recognize that philanthropy, no matter the dollar amount, is a highly personal matter to which a great deal of thought is – and should be – devoted. It is also an extraordinarily meaningful way to become involved in the life and growth of an organization in which you believe. The funding vehicles that support Hotchkiss through its current short-term and long-term goals anticipate the cyclical needs of the School to ensure that every gift makes an impact.
Thank you for your interest in supporting the School and its mission.
The Hotchkiss Fund provides necessary income to the School’s operating budget to support a range of immediate needs that touch the entire campus, including faculty salaries, a winning debate team, library books, computers, sports equipment, art supplies, and more. Learn more >>
Capital Gifts provide important support of people (through financial assistance, endowed faculty chairs, and other means), programs (such as in the global and environmental initiatives), and places (residential spaces and other campus facilities). Capital donors enable growth at Hotchkiss today and in the foreseeable future. Learn more >>
Planned Gifts allow donors to invest in the School’s future while benefitting from that investment during their lifetime. Through thoughtful financial, estate, and tax planning, a planned gift tailored to a donor’s needs and interests will allow Hotchkiss to thrive for many years into the future. Learn more >>
