The Bartlett Tower Society
The Bartlett Tower Society celebrates the thousands of alumni, parents, and friends who include Dartmouth in their estate plans. When you name Dartmouth as a noncontingent beneficiary in your charitable gift planning, you will receive special recognition as a member of the Bartlett Tower Society.
Participation in any of these plans will grant membership in the Society:
- Beneficiary designation
- Charitable gift annuities
- Charitable lead trust
- Charitable remainder trust
- Dartmouth Donor Advised Fund
- Pooled income funds
- Retained life estate
The Society was named in honor of Samuel Colcord Bartlett, Class of 1836, who served as the College's eighth president, from 1877 to 1892. More than $700,000 was raised during Bartlett’s tenure through lifetime gifts and realized bequests.
Bartlett Tower, an iconic structure on the Dartmouth campus, is located on Observatory Hill. It was a grassroots project built by successive classes of undergraduates between 1885 and 1895.
