The Family Fellows Society celebrates the impact of parent and family philanthropy at Dartmouth.

Family Fellows have distinguished themselves through leadership giving. Our members are committed parents, grandparents, and family members who support one or more areas of Dartmouth College with annual gifts of $25,000 or more. Many Fellows make their gift through the Parents and Grandparents Fund, while others prefer to support specific institutional priorities.

Family Fellows Weekend

Family Fellows are invited to our signature event—Family Fellows Weekend—which takes place on Dartmouth’s campus each February. As a guest of the College, Family Fellows have opportunities to meet President Hanlon and Dartmouth’s senior leadership, learn from internationally recognized professors, and gather with other families who share a passion and commitment to a distinctive Dartmouth.

Other Opportunities

Family Fellows Society members also receive invitations to engage with Dartmouth students, faculty, leadership, and their philanthropic peers at on-campus and regional events throughout the year.

Answering the Call to Lead

Gifts to the Dartmouth Parents and Grandparents Fund and all areas of the institution are included in The Call to Lead, Dartmouth’s comprehensive campaign which will:

  • Advance Dartmouth’s distinctive educational model to its fullest expression,
  • Pursue discoveries that benefit humankind, and
  • Prepare students for lives of wise leadership.

Thank you for joining this supportive community of parents and families by making a gift today.
