What we are about
The Alumni Board encourages Mars Hill graduates to:
- establish a habit of philanthropy and active involvement with Mars Hill
- achieve a high level of class participation
- build class unity
- nurture and develop leadership
Why should you give?
Giving is good. Mars Hill changed our lives. It gave us outstanding academic resources, lasting friendships, and countless memories. Our Mars Hill experience was made possible through the generosity of the alumni who came before us. Now we have the opportunity to build on this great tradition of alumni support and to say "thank you." Our gifts to the Mars Hill Annual Fund will help future generations of students.
The things that make Mars Hill great:
Our gifts help students cheer the football team, run track, attend campus events, and get involved in student activities.
Help your class score the highest participation rate in Mars Hill history! (High annual participation also improves our national rankings) Let’s show other small private institutions in the Southeast what we’re made of!
