Gift Purpose
The Dartmouth Class of 1966 Dean Thaddeus Seymour Endowment for the Dickey Center (#03421) (“the Fund”) is a true endowment established in honor of the 55th Reunion of the Class of 1966 and in memory of their beloved dean, Thaddeus Seymour, who was Dean of the College from 1959-1969. The Fund is designed to support internships for students at the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College. It is the Donors’ goal to raise gifts for the Fund with the aim of supporting two or more interns annually. In the event that income from the Fund exceeds that needed to support costs of internships for students, excess income may be used to support student programming at the Dickey Center.

Administration
Expenditures of income from the Dartmouth Class of 1966 Dean Thaddeus Seymour Endowment for the Dickey Center will be monitored by the Provost. As with other endowment funds, Dartmouth’s Office of Finance & Administration will oversee this Fund in accordance with the endowment management, distribution, and utilization policies established by the Trustees of Dartmouth College. These policies govern the investment of endowment funds and the distribution and utilization of endowment earnings to defray the direct and associated costs of programs designated for support by donors. These policies may be revised from time to time by the Trustees of Dartmouth College. A summary of current policies is available from the Development or Finance Office upon request.

Endowment Contingency
If, at some time in the future, it is the opinion of the Trustees of Dartmouth College that all or part of the income from this Fund cannot be usefully applied to the objectives as stated in the foregoing paragraphs, the Trustees of Dartmouth College may use the income for any purpose which, in their opinion, most nearly approximates the stated purpose above.
