Dartmouth College Fund: Financial Aid
One in every two Dartmouth students relies on financial aid. Your support makes Dartmouth possible.
Meet the Class of 2022 and make an end-of-year gift to ensure their success.
Dartmouth’s unparalleled academic and residential life experiences are only possible with the support of alumni, parents, and friends—members of the Dartmouth community like you who believe in paying it forward.
Gifts made any time of the year help transform the lives of our students. The final weeks leading up to December 31, however, offer a final opportunity to receive a tax benefit for the current year while you generously help make sure every undergraduate can realize his or her full potential at Dartmouth.
Who are these students benefiting from your generosity? Meet the Class of 2022 and then please make a gift to ensure a bright future for them—and for all of our students.
Whether you direct your giving to the Dartmouth College Fund—the leading source of financial aid for our students—or to one of The Call to Lead campaign priorities, the gift you make in December will benefit our students throughout the year.
