The Dickinson Fund
Dickinson’s annual fund, the Dickinson Fund, supports annual costs to offset tuition dollars. Though Dickinson Fund gifts can be directed to specific priorities, giving to the “Area of Greatest Need,” provides critical support for financial aid, academic research, athletics, sustainability efforts and nearly all aspects of student life.
Dickinson's Campaign for Scholarships seeks to raise enough money to make sure that every Dickinson student who needs a scholarship gets a scholarship. The goal is to make sure that we provide sufficient aid to meet the full demonstrated need for every student we admit.
Gifts supporting academic programming enable Dickinson students to understand the world by engaging it.
Dickinson is proud of all that our athletes have accomplished, and the McAndrews Fund for Athletics is the backbone for much of that success.
Dickinson’s commitment to caring for our students runs deep. Gifts in support of our wellness initiatives focus on services at Dickinson that provide for the emotional well-being of our students. This includes support for our counseling center, student programming, our Title IX office and more.
At Dickinson, we prepare our graduates to thrive with skills that are most useful in the world.
Dickinson recognizes that learning happens inside and outside the classroom. Student participation in clubs and organizations develops skills in leadership, community building and much more. Gifts designated for student life support opportunities and activities that turn the Dickinson education into the Dickinson experience.
