Independence Club


Ensuring Excellence
for Future Generations

For more than 40 years, the Independence Club has been Hillsdale’s annual fundraising campaign, supporting the College’s mission of institutional independence and academic excellence for current and future students. Independence Club members may choose to support the Student Independence Grant and Loan Fund or faculty salaries and enrichment, library acquisitions, and Hillsdale’s many outstanding academic programs. Each year, thousands of alumni, friends, and parents of students contribute generously. In 2016-2017, over 900 Independence Club members provided more than $2 million in support of Hillsdale’s independence and other College needs.

The Independence Club, vital to the College’s success for more than 40 years, will continue to play a key role for decades to come.
