It is Time to Show your Support for the DCLA!
Your 2017-2018 dues provide you with DCLA membership from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.

Each year the club brings together local alumni and others for friendship, networking and continuing education. DCLA brings professors from Dartmouth, provides book awards to juniors at various Southern California high schools, facilitates community outreach and interviewing of potential Dartmouth students, and raises money both for scholarship funds that support Dartmouth students from the LA area and for our Coats from the Coast program. Our Coats program provides gift certificates for outerwear warm enough to withstand a Hanover winter to low income students from the Los Angeles area.

We rely on your support to sustain this organization. The Dartmouth Club of Los Angeles is self-funded. DCLA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Membership Dues and donations to Coats from the Coast, Scholarship Fund, and Book Awards are tax-deductible. Click here to join!

The first is the DCLA Scholarship Fund. The second is the Robert S. Morris 1936 Memorial Scholarship Fund. Donations to the Scholarship Funds are tax-deductible.

Support Coats from the Coast

Coats from the Coast is a charity program started by the Dartmouth Club of Los Angeles in 2010 to provide students from Southern California attending Dartmouth on full scholarship with warm weather gear so they won’t have to worry about frostbite when they venture outside their dorm rooms. Donations to Coats from the Coast are tax-deductible.

Book Awards

Started in 1977, Dartmouth’s Alumni Club Book Award Program has grown from a handful of alumni clubs presenting a few books to high school sophomores and juniors to many participating clubs presenting hundreds of books. This program promotes the name of Dartmouth College among the high school students residing in the club areas. The DCLA awards The Poetry of Robert Frost: The Collected Poems, Complete and Unabridged. Donations to the Book Awards are tax-deductible.
