Where would you like to make a difference?
The Dickinson College Annual Fund turns individual gifts of all sizes into a collective pool of support for the college's highest priorities and most important initiatives. It's alumni, parents and friends of the college, all working together to make an immediate difference.
Unrestricted gifts provide Dickinson with the greatest flexibility to respond to budgetary needs campuswide and across the curriculum. Gifts directed toward a specific purpose are equally important. Many donors prefer to match their personal interests with college priorities, so we invite you to direct your Annual Fund gift to the area you find most compelling. Through these designations, you'll find that you have more flexibility to support the aspect of Dickinson life that represents your specific interest.
This most important source of discretionary revenue is the cornerstone of the Annual Fund. Gifts that are unrestricted enable the college to provide resources to those areas where the need is greatest.
The college strives to attract innovative and engaged students who are critical thinkers and community leaders. Gifts of scholarship will allow the college to attract the best students, regardless of need.
Gift designated to academic programming provide support for academic initiatives and priorities across the curriculum. Although you may feel personal connections to specific departments, your support for Dickinson's overall academic programming ensures equitable benefits for all disciplines and supports student success in every field of endeavor.
The heart of a Dickinson education is its faculty. Gifts to this area will support their work, enhance compensation levels and provide opportunities for professional development and research initiatives.
Dickinson recognizes that student participation in clubs and organizations outside the classroom is important to individuals and to the community. Gifts designated to student life will support opportunities and activities that enhance the overall Dickinson experience.
Dickinson is committed to environmental sustainability and accountability in every facet of campus life. Gifts to sustainability will support on-campus initiatives to preserve our natural resources for the 21st century and beyond.
