Frequently Asked Questions

Why give to the Hamden Hall Fund?

Your support allows us to deliver an outstanding educational experience including talented teachers, small class sizes, dynamic learning environments and unlimited resources, and so much more. The full cost of our programming and enrichment exceeds the amount we charge in tuition. And, because we are a private school, we do not receive funding from our state or federal government. The Hamden Hall Fund provides unrestricted monies for the daily operations of our school community. Click here to make a gift.

Does Hamden Hall allow Matching Gift Opportunities?

Many corporations have a matching contribution program that doubles or even triples the amount of your gift to our school.

What are other ways I can contribute to Hamden Hall?

The gift of time and talent is a considerable one that adds to the overall value of our school community. Our volunteers play an important role in enhancing the life of our school. What’s better than having our parents and alumni - in other words, individuals who understand our mission and have an affinity for our school - lend their expertise and creativity? Our volunteer opportunities range from coordinating events and reunions to raising dollars for our Hamden Hall Fund and helping us stay connected to all of our constituents. If you are interested in volunteering at Hamden Hall, please contact our office at 203.752.7616

Will my gift make a difference? 

Every gift makes a difference! In fact, because of the gifts garnered from parents and families of previous generations of students, as well as alumni who graduated from our halls, today’s students enjoy myriad benefits including our beautiful campuses and the legacy of attending one of the nation’s top independent day schools. 

How can I make a gift?

It’s simple! Gifts to Hamden Hall can be made in the form of cash, check, credit card, marketable securities, real estate or life insurance. To learn more about these options, please contact our office at 203.752.2616.  Click here to make a gift online.
