Moniti Meliora Sequamur. “Guided by each other; let us seek better paths.”
This motto permeates all aspects of School life for our community of students, faculty and staff. Your generosity is vital in supporting our students as they discover their own paths. Please consider joining generations of alumni, parents and friends, like those featured in the videos and testimonials below, with a gift to Hotchkiss.
Your gifts to The Hotchkiss Fund and the Parents Fund are an investment in the School's students and teachers — and the impact they will have on their communities and the world. In addition to providing 11 percent of the operating budget, the Fund helps bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of educating each student. The Fund also supports day-to-day operations, ongoing maintenance, and faculty development, among other high-priority needs. Follow this link to make a gift online.
A capital gift can have a far-reaching impact on the life of the School. Donors who wish to support a specific aspect of Hotchkiss with a capital gift may contribute to any of the following initiatives established by the head of school and the board of trustees:
I have steadily contributed to The Hotchkiss Fund since graduating in 1955 to express my appreciation for the excellent education I received. Hotchkiss is doing a first-rate job of keeping up with its mission and is totally deserving of a significant portion of my annual charitable giving. Hotchkiss is making a difference, and I want to be part of that for as long as possible.
