Centennial Circle

The Centennial Circle, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2024, has established a new national standard for alumnae-led philanthropy in higher education.

Our Mission

The Centennial Circle builds community, fosters dialogue, and contributes meaningfully to Dartmouth by expanding access and affordability.

Our History

Inspired by the Dartmouth College Fund’s 100-year history, alumnae created the Centennial Circle, setting the course for a new century of alumnae philanthropy.

Our Impact

The Centennial Circle has 335 members who together have given more than $100 million for financial aid, funding the equivalent of 1,768 full scholarships.

An Extraordinary Response

In early 2014, a small group of dedicated alumnae set an ambitious goal to recruit 100 Dartmouth women to make gifts of $100,000 or more to honor the 100th anniversary of the Dartmouth College Fund.

In April, 2024, Centennial Circle members presented a $12.5 million check to President Sian Leah Beilock. As with nearly all funds raised through the Centennial Circle, the anniversary gift will provide essential financial aid for undergraduates and graduate students through the Dartmouth College Fund and the annual funds of Dartmouth’s graduate and professional schools.

Testimonials

Laurel Richie headshot

We have placed Dartmouth at the vanguard of women’s philanthropy. Who benefits from this? Every student who can now enjoy a Dartmouth education through expanded scholarship resources and the knowledge that you care enough to see them through.”

Laurel Richie ’81

Chair Emerita of the Dartmouth Board of Trustees

portrait of Liz Lempres

With their ideas, their service, and their generous gifts, Dartmouth women want students today and tomorrow to know that we are deeply invested in their success.”

Elizabeth Cahill Lempres ’83 TH’84

Chair of the Dartmouth Board of Trustees

First-Gen Mentoring Program

Alumnae share perspectives and guidance with first-generation female students seeking advice to help them navigate the Dartmouth experience.

A lot of the difficulty is simply not knowing how it all works. You don’t need to have been a Dartmouth undergrad to be a mentor in this program. You just need to have navigated life.”

Ann-Marie Halsted TU’97

Dartmouth is a giant institution and there is so much for students to figure out in four years. I wanted to help students who might feel the same way I did.”
