Why Participation Matters

Yes, Hiram does rely on donors who can make significant gifts, but we also rely on thousands of individuals who make gifts at every level. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. Gifts from Hiram alumni, parents and friends tell the world that those who know Hiram best care about its future.

Alumni participation, in particular, matters to the College. Alumni giving impacts Hiram’s standing in national rankings of colleges and universities. And, participation rates from alumni are often requested by foundations/corporations before they will make a grant to the college.

Contributing to the Hiram Fund is perhaps the most simple and most important thing you can do to help the College.  The Hiram Fund is the way all of us can join together to make a significant impact on the lives of Hiram students and to preserve the Hiram College legacy.
