The Dickinson Fund operates at the very heart of the college and its impact is felt in the lives of students every day.
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 the following:
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.
Gifts 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.
Buildings and grounds are more than walls and lawns—they house our experiences and provide structure to who we are as individuals and as a community.
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.
