Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

Hotchkiss is a remarkable community that changes the lives of all who study here: from the teachers who helped you learn to read critically and write persuasively, to your life-long friendships, to the coaches, conductors, and editors who pushed you to become more than you thought possible.

Our community has always honored those connections by supporting future generations of Hotchkiss students, athletes, friends.
