The FLFC is a supportive community of families who believe in the power of a Dartmouth education for all students.

Together, we support the success of Dartmouth students through volunteer engagement, events, and activities—on campus and around the world—that strengthen the bonds between the College and our families.



What Members Do

Members of the Dartmouth Family Leadership and Fundraising Committee:

  • Encourage support through outreach calls and event attendance
  • Welcome incoming parents and families to the Dartmouth community
  • Host and attend Dartmouth events in their locale
  • Hear from Dartmouth thought leaders and senior leadership during monthly conference calls and annual on-campus meetings
