HAMBURG, N.Y. – The Hilbert College community came together for its annual Giving Day on April 22, 2021 to boast a 15% increase over last year in the total number of donors and nearly $50,000 to help the College carry out its mission. Alumni, students, family members, faculty, staff, and friends of Hilbert supported the College’s Giving Day and these contributions will have an immediate impact on the well-being of students, programs, and initiatives.
In 2020, in response to meeting Hilbert students’ greatest and most urgent needs, the College created the Franciscan Student Resource Fund. This fund continues to help current and future students in immeasurable ways during these unprecedented last 13 months.
“I am so grateful for the tremendous outpouring of support for Hilbert students on this year’s Giving Day,” Hilbert President Michael S. Brophy, Ph.D. said. "Together with our dear Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph, we renew the spirit of Mother Colette Hilbert, who said ‘in all things charity.’ On behalf of the students who will be impacted by your generosity and in gratitude for all that you do for Hilbert every day, we thank you.”
Giving Day 2021 was declared a Hilbert Spirit Day, with faculty, staff, and students on campus wearing Hilbert apparel with pride. The day-long event featured giveaways for students, an 8-foot banner honoring the Class of 2021 – provided by the Hilbert Alumni Association, and HAWK Radio playing tunes throughout the event.
As a special and personal touch, every Giving Day donor will be acknowledged with a handwritten thank you note from a Hilbert student.
Hilbert College, located in suburban Hamburg, N.Y., south of Buffalo, is a private four-year college founded in 1957 in the Catholic Franciscan tradition. With nearly 800 students, Hilbert is a dynamic Western New York college that offers career-focused majors, including one of the top criminal justice programs in the region, and more than 50 minors and concentrations. The college’s engaging, student-centered campus community offers numerous leadership, internship, and service learning opportunities from which students launch successful careers while making positive changes in their communities. The Hilbert Blueprint promotes a well-rounded student experience over four years – starting with the Foundations Seminar in the freshman year, followed by Sophomore Service, Junior Symposium, and culminating with the Senior Capstone. Hilbert has expanded its academic offerings with the college’s first graduate programs in criminal justice administration and public administration, including a track in health administration.
