Geisel Announces $11 Million in Gifts for Scholarships

A new $10 million gift commitment from a Dartmouth medical school alumnus is the third largest gift in the school’s history and the largest commitment received to date by the Geisel School of Medicine as part of The Call to Lead, Dartmouth’s comprehensive fundraising campaign. Combined with a bequest commitment of approximately $1 million from a second alumnus, the gifts will add $11 million to the school’s scholarship endowment, significantly increasing financial aid for medical students.

A gift from Dr. Norman Payson ('73) will help ease the financial burden of medical school for students at Geisel. On a recent visit to Geisel, Payson met with students Rachel LaRocca (left) and Bridget Curley.

Giving Back, Paying Forward

Giving in support of student scholarships feels good. Dr. Norman Payson (’73) can attest to that. The Geisel alumnus and his wife, Melinda, recently made a $1 million gift that brings their total giving to scholarships at Geisel to $3.5 million.
