Every gift of every size makes a difference. Because the Dickinson Fund harnesses the collective energy of thousands of alumni and parent donors, you can see yourself here and deeply impact the lives of today’s students with a gift of any dollar amount.

Your $50 gift combines with seven other comparable gifts to provide one of the virtual-reality headsets used in Associate Professor of Psychology Suman Ambwani’s student-faculty course probing how mood and personality shape perception.

“There is burgeoning interest in using virtual reality for research because you can expose people to different types of situations within a controlled, safe environment. It’s wonderful that our students are getting the opportunity to use this technology and stay ahead of the curve.”

—Associate Professor of Psychology Suman Ambwani

Your $150 gift provides vital athletics resources like Hammer Strength medicine balls used by the Red Devil football players in the off-season to help them claim the Conestoga Wagon trophy and the Little Brown Bucket from F&M and Gettysburg for the first time since 2011.

Your $250 gift combines with others to help fund study-abroad research projects for students like Bridgette Stickney ’20, who researched breast cancer in India, interned with India’s Comprehensive Rural Health project and traveled to Tanzania to complete ethnographic research.

Want to make an even bigger impact?

With your gift of $2,500 you can join the John Dickinson Society, the college’s premier leadership donor society, which provides more than half of vital Dickinson Fund dollars each year.

With your gift of $5,000 you can establish a Dickinson Fund Scholarship to help bring to Dickinson students like Muhammad Burhan ’21, who’s already founded a nonprofit to help improve education in Pakistan.

“My scholarship not only changed my life, but also the lives of hundreds of people in my community who see me as an inspiration.”

—Muhammad Burhan '21

Donors who establish Dickinson Fund Scholarships are invited to our annual Scholarship Luncheon, where they get to meet the students who benefit from their generosity.
