|Given the ever-fluid environment these days, we wanted to share some updated information regarding the Dartmouth College Fund landscape. As you know, we continue to be committed to help with Dartmouth’s highest and most urgent priority – ensuring that Dartmouth can attract the most talented students based on their abilities — not their ability to pay.
A recent Dartmouth survey of its Moosilauke Forum group indicated that 75% of alumni believe that financial aid is the area of the College they most want to support.
The Dartmouth College Fund is the College’s largest single source of student financial aid, and the best way that alumni can impact today’s Dartmouth students. Every dollar that is donated goes directly to assist students.
And, the need is growing. The number of the first-year students receiving scholarship support has grown by 2% over last year, while the average financial aid award for the Class of 2024 is up 7%, to more than $60,000, in a year-to-year comparison. Approximately 22% of the current first-year students come from families earning $100,000 or less a year, meaning they’re receiving full-tuition scholarships, up from 20% for the Class of 2023.
For our 30th Reunion, Head Agents Gaby Guise and Joe McGee coordinated our DCF fundraising efforts and together we raised more than we had ever raised before — over $4.7 million! For our 35th, we have set our second highest goal ever — $3.5 million with 35% of our ’85 classmates participating.Every donation is important. Together, we hope to raise enough to fully support 70 students. Your gift helps pay for a student’s direct and indirect expenses including tuition, fees, food, housing, books, travel and supplies.We have a great team of Agents and we are happy to provide any information that will help you make a Reunion giving decision.
