One of the reasons why Hammond School continues to be the premier independent school in Columbia is because of the generosity it receives for education from current parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends. It is impossible to name the countless ways our supporters give from school volunteering to financial support. This commitment to Hammond is uplifting and inspiring, and allows the school to carry out the school's mission to instill in students a commitment to academic excellence and a recognition of individual potential that will contribute to the development of their characters.
Support to Hammond comes in two main ways-gifts of time and gifts of "treasure". Volunteering at Hammond can take many forms: staffing the concession stand at a football game, serving as a homeroom parent, assisting with the auction, stuffing envelopes, or even organizing a golf tournament. Whatever your talent or passion, Hammond could use-and most of all, appreciates your help.
Gifts of treasure take a school from good to great. Your support, whether it is through the annual fund supporting capital needs or in some other way, has a vital impact on Hammond and our students. Thank you for continuing the long tradition of philanthropy on which Hammond was founded.
