CHOOSE YOUR IMPACT
Through philanthropy and engagement, Dartmouth’s alumni, parents and friends provide a transformational impact on the experiences of student-athletes and the competitive success of Big Green Athletics. The following programs create and strengthen relationships between our supporters and our coaches and student-athletes through special events, volunteer opportunities, regular communication, and financial support.
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.
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:
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.
From time to time, Dartmouth looks to its alumni, parents and friends to support various capital projects.
