What is the Dartmouth College Fund?

The DCF is an annual fund that plays a central role in bringing the most promising students to Dartmouth for a world-class liberal arts education. More than half of our undergraduates rely on some amount of financial aid to come to Dartmouth. Your DCF gift is the most direct way to support all Dartmouth students.

What is annual giving?

Every dollar raised through the Dartmouth College Fund supports the full Dartmouth experience for all students in the fiscal year it is received. Because of the consistent generosity of alumni towards the DCF, annual gifts provide the same opportunities for students as the income earned from a $1B endowed fund.
