The Harold C. Ripley ’29 Society

join the 1769 society


Harold C. Ripley ’29 was famous for his bowties, his sense of humor, and his loyalty to Dartmouth. Hal gave to the Dartmouth College Fund for 83 consecutive years—from his graduation in 1929 until his death in September 2011 at the age of 104.

The Harold C. Ripley ’29 Society was formed in 2009 to recognize alumni who have demonstrated a commitment to giving through the Dartmouth College Fund every year since graduation. Today, more than 5,000 alumni belong to the Ripley Society, making annual giving to Dartmouth a priority each and every year.

Please keep your streak going! When you make a Fund gift of any size each year, you honor Hal Ripley and your connection to Dartmouth.
