1769 Society

The 1769 Society is a community of generous alumni, parents, and friends who demonstrate the power of collective giving to make Dartmouth accessible for all students.

1769 Society members make up only about 10 percent of donors but provide almost 80 percent of the funds Dartmouth uses for its vital financial aid program.

Your leadership giving—and membership in the 1769 Society—make a real and immediate impact on Dartmouth, keeping our community vibrant, diverse, and thriving.

Our Students Want to Thank You
