How much money should I give to the Hood Fund?
Every gift counts! In fiscal year 2016, 2,736 donors supported the Hood Fund. Thirty-six percent of Hood Fund donors gave less than $100, totaling $35,445—nearly the cost of one year’s worth of tuition at Hood.
What does my Hood Fund gift support?
It costs more than $115,000 to operate the College daily. Tuition alone supports only half of the cost of a Hood education; the Hood Fund helps bridge the gap. Your gift to the Hood Fund supports faculty and student research, student scholarships and financial aid, campus life and the residential experience, extra-curricular activities and many other areas that enhance Hood’s mission.
