The Alexander Hamilton Friends Association is a Seattle based non-profit organization founded by George Cox and Bill Thomas focused on assisting high-achieving students across the nation who lack the financial resources and personal support. Hamilton Friends actively works to
- Empower and help them with gaining acceptance into college
- Transition successfully to university life and the workforce
- Supplement their formal education with leadership training, internships, financial assistance, and goal-setting activities
Hamilton Friends is able to help its Scholars emerge from college ready to confront the multi-faceted challenges of our nation and our world in ways that their parents cannot.
If you (ONE person) donate, you help to support THIRTY-FIVE high-achieving low-income students selected annually across the United States.
Since 2006, 147 of our Scholars have matriculated to top-tier colleges across the nation. The schools with the greatest number of Hamilton Scholars are Harvard University (10), University of Washington (7), University of Pennsylvania (6), UC Berkeley (6), UCLA (5), and UNC-Chapel Hill (5). You can find a Hammie on 95 (and growing) college campuses across the nation!
You're investing in THREE things:
- The next generation of national leaders and international volunteers.
- The belief that hardwork and an education can take you anywhere in life.
- The importance of teaching students the value of every dollar.
If you are unable to donate, please come out and bike a portion of my journey with me. I would love the company and it'd be a lot of fun!
