Areas to Support
Through contributions from alumni, parents, and other friends, every Hood student – even the ones who pay full tuition – receives a “silent scholarship.”
With the support of the broader Hood community, the College is capable of greatness rather than status quo. The board and president are able to make choices rather than compromises. The faculty are empowered to update and develop curriculum to prepare students for their lives in the 2020s and beyond.
The students are emboldened to pursue internships, engage in athletics, and develop intellectual passions. Some are enabled to dream of a college education their family could not afford otherwise. Only with the philanthropic investment of alumni and those committed to Hood College – do these things become possible.
