Ways to Give


In the last 15 years, Dartmouth has invested – thanks to the generosity of donors – over $100m in facility projects, which includes new construction, major renovations of existing spaces and expansions to meet the growing needs of our programs. For more information on current facility needs, please contact athletics.fundraising@dartmouth.edu

Areas to Support

There are many different funds within Dartmouth Athletics that donors may choose to support, including:

Your Favorite Friends Program

These funds provide targeted support to a particular club or varsity sport (for example, Friends of Soccer supports both men's and women's varsity soccer). This is the primary way in which alumni, parents and friends choose to impact specific Dartmouth sports.

Athletic Sponsors

This unique program provides vital recruiting resources for all varsity sports, and is the sole source of funds for bringing top athletic prospects to the campus on recruiting trips.

The AD's Fund For Excellence

These dollars allow Dartmouth's athletics director to address areas of highest priority, launch new initiatives, and take advantage of strategic opportunities.

Dartmouth Athletics Endowment (DAE)

The DAE provides a permanent source of income to support the College's broad-based athletics and recreation programs. Annual income from the DAE helps to secure the financial future of Dartmouth's teams and can be tailored to support specific initatives within Dartmouth Athletics, such as:

Endowed Positions

Dartmouth has raised more than $20M in gifts to honor the great traditions of our teams and secure the financial future of Dartmouth Athletics.

Dartmouth Peak Performance (DP2)

This ground-breaking initiative enables student-athletes to achieve the highest levels of physical, intellectual and personal growth during their time at Dartmouth.

Capital Projects

From time to time, Dartmouth looks to its alumni, parents and friends to support various capital projects.


Gifts for Friends, Sponsors and the AD's Fund can be made using Dartmouth's online gift form. To make a gift to DP2, DAE or capital needs, please contact athletics.fundraising@dartmouth.edu
