    The Annual Fund

    Each year, loyal Hamline alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends contribute gifts in support of students and their educational opportunities.

    These collective gifts are known as the Annual Fund. Annual gifts have an impact on nearly every aspect of day-to-day life at Hamline, sustaining the quality of our academic programs, supporting our faculty, and ensuring adequate financial aid for all students. All gifts to the Annual Fund are a statement of support for Hamline’s mission to prepare students for a life of leadership, scholarship and service.

    Gifts from alumni are especially treasured because they are the ultimate vote of confidence in a Hamline education. Giving back is a positive way of honoring your own Hamline experience, while helping make the same opportunity available to a current student.

    In order to make the greatest difference for our students, we encourage you to direct your gifts to the Annual Fund to the following priority areas:


    Unrestricted gifts are used to support the highest priorities of the university, including:

    • Faculty and curriculum support
    • Financial aid
    • Research funds and lab improvements
    • Career development opportunities
    • Extracurricular activities

    Gifts can be designated as unrestricted to the university, or as unrestricted to a specific school or college at Hamline.

    Opportunity Scholarship Fund

    Hamline is pleased to announce the establishment of the Opportunity Scholarship Fund as the university reaffirms its commitment to students by increasing the amount of financial aid available. One hundred percent of gifts designated to this portion of the Annual Fund will be used to provide annual scholarship support to current students.

    Named Annual Scholarship

    Establish a named annual scholarship with a minimum gift of $1,000 a year for five years. Donors receive naming rights for the scholarship and work with a development officer to establish basic criteria for awarding the scholarship to a student.
