The Dickinson Fund fuels every aspect of the Dickinson experience—from supporting academic programs and student-faculty research to providing leadership opportunities through athletics and student life.

Alumni, parents and friends of the college who make a gift to the Dickinson Fund each year are vital partners in our historic mission to prepare future leaders through a useful education for the common good. Below, you can see our current status on this fiscal-year’s goals for the Dickinson Fund.
