Supporting Hutchison

Financial Assistance Challenge

List of 1 items.

  • We are Better Together

An anonymous donor has issued a $5 million Financial Assistance Challenge, matching your gift by 50 percent when directed toward financial assistance.

This means Hutchison must raise $10 million to get the full $5 million match.


Thanks to your generosity we have raised over $4 million towards the challenge.


Because of your enthusiastic response, our anonymous donor has graciously extended the Challenge for the 2019-2020 school year.

We Need Your Help

Help us raise the additional $6 million needed to secure the full matching gift.

How You Can Help

  • Direct your Hutchison Fund gift to Financial Assistance.
  • Consider an additional gift or multi-year pledge to the Endowment.
  • Name Hutchison as a beneficiary in your estate plan.

Financial Assistance at Hutchison

When you support the Financial Assistance Challenge, you are supporting Memphis. The young women you help educate are our community’s future leaders in government, education, business, and social justice.

  • The majority of families currently receiving tuition assistance pay at least half of their daughter’s tuition.
  • An independent third party determines how much a qualified family can reasonably budget for tuition.
  • No family receives assistance for full tuition.
  • Hutchison lags behind peer schools. For example, Hutchison awards approximately $1.5 million over 15 grades while MUS awards $2.7 million over just six grades.
    • Dr. Kristen Ring, Head of School

      It’s important to our community and world that we make the extraordinary Hutchison education available to more girls across the Mid-South.
