Hiram College Breaks Record With First-Ever Double Digit Fundraising Year

The collective support of alumni and friends resulted in a fourth consecutive record-breaking fundraising year, generating more than $10.2 million in cash gifts for Hiram College. 

Fiscal year 2019 highlights include: 

  • $1.25 million gift from an anonymous donor to support need-based scholarships; 
  • $2 million gift from an anonymous donor to advance projects and priorities included in The New Liberal Arts™;
  • Naming of the Scarborough School of Business & Communication, the first of five new schools to be named from a philanthropic gift; and
  • The launch of a $40 million boutique fundraising campaign, dubbed Vision 20/20.

Thanks to your generosity, the future is bright for current and future members of the Hiram community!
