More than 1,000 Dartmouth alumni, parents, and other supporters are currently members of the Sponsors Recruiting Fund, which provides vital recruiting resources for all of Dartmouth's varsity sports. The Sponsor Program is the sole source of funds for bringing nearly 300 top athletic prospects to the campus each year for a first-hand view of the Dartmouth Experience.  Many of these talented students do not otherwise have the means to travel to Hanover and be exposed to the life-changing opportunities the College offers. Additional Sponsor funds are allocated for coaches' recruiting trips, cell phones, and recruiting vehicles that enable our coaches to search far and wide for elite student-athletes of all socio-economic backgrounds.* 

All Sponsors receive our monthly online newsletter, are invited to attend tent receptions prior to home football games and receive an invitation to our annual Sponsors picnic in September. At certain membership levels, you are also informed of the specific athlete whose recruiting trip your donation made possible, so you can follow his or her progress through four years at Dartmouth.
