Annual Gifts

The 1882 Fund supports every aspect of the Hastings College experience and helps close the gap between budgeted expenses and actual tuition revenue. For the 2015-16 academic year, Hastings College must raise $1.5 million for the 1882 Fund to balance the operating budget and meet immediate needs.
Annual gifts from alumni, parents and friends provide scholarships for outstanding students with financial need and enhance all aspects of students’ academic and co-curricular experiences. Gifts can be made online, by responding to one of our mailings or contacting us.

The Hastings College telefund program employs students to reach out to alumni and friends each year. Their mission is to increase support of the 1882 Fund and help keep you updated on campus activities. They also work to keep your information current to ensure the College can stay connected with you. When you receive a call from one of our students, take a few minutes to learn what's new and see how your support can make a positive impact.
