Why Give?

As a Hunter student you were a member of an amazing educational community of like-minded students and encouraging faculty who challenged you, taught you to value intellectual discourse and the life of the mind, and opened up opportunities that you might not otherwise have had. It is our mission at the Alumnae/i Association to foster that legacy and the Hunter High community, and to support and assist the school so it can continue to provide the same extraordinary experience for current and future Hunter students.  

Your gift to Hunter affects every student and every teacher every day. Your donation helps finance new academic initiatives, attract and retain an outstanding faculty as well as a diverse and talented student body, and sustain the excellence of HCHS programs. Annual Fund and Class Gifts provide direct financial support to the high school, ensuring that each student is able to have the Hunter experience they deserve, and bolstering the value of your own degree in turn.

While helping to support the school is our primary mission, we also foster a large and talented community of alumnae/i, and work hard to ensure that you never lose touch with your fellow Hunterites. The HCHSAA organizes programs for professional engagement and networking opportunities, hosts events, maintains a vast online directory, and provides updates on alum activities through the website, newsletters, and the tri-annual AlumNotes. We are committed to helping you retain and grow your Hunter family.

In order to accomplish these and far more, we need your help. Your donation can be targetted to a specific need, or go to wherever it is need the most; anything from student scholarships to alumnae/i museum tours, from new equipment for the classrooms to maintenance of this website. But the biggest benefit of all is knowing that you are making a difference to your school and your extended Hunter community. Donate today, and thank you.
