Dartmouth United Way 41 Years Strong
We begin our 2014 Dartmouth Campaign for Granite United Way with great enthusiasm for our remarkable capacity at the College to reach out and support those in need in our Upper Valley community. Together we contributed a record $305,956 last year to support local programs addressing critical needs in education, income, and health-representing a third of all contributions for the Upper Valley and the single largest campaign in the region.
We are excited to build on the energy and commitment we saw from a growing number of United Way contributors at the College. This year our goal is to raise $320,000 while continuing to expand our base of United Way supporters within the broad Dartmouth community. This effort begins with you.
Your gift-in any amount-is combined with those of your friends, co-workers, and colleagues to maximize its impact in the Upper Valley. take a look at how our United Way contributions helped our neighbors local community last year:
Since the College campaign started in 1973, Dartmouth has contributed $6 million to improve the well-being of our communities. Please join the leadership effort of the Dartmouth Campaign for Granite United Way by sharing whatever you can with our neighbors in need Together we can continue to make a difference.

Dartmouth Campaign for Granite United Way
In this video, Geisel School of Medicine faculty member Dr. Joseph O'Donnell discusses how we can strengthen the social safety net in the Upper Valley and how easy it is for faculty and staff to give to the Dartmouth United Way Campaign and help our neighbors in need.
The Tuck School's Creative Services team, Tuck Assistant Dean Steve Lubrano, and Upper Valley cartoonist and publisher Matt Young, a former Granite United Way volunteer of the year, got together to illustrate just how much good you can do by donating to the United Way. What are you waiting for?
Dartmouth has been committed to the United Way in the Upper Valley for 40 years, through volunteer work, monetary contributions and organizational leadership. Geisel PhD student Marie Onakomaiya is just one example. She has volunteered at the Upper Valley Haven for several years, donates to the United Way, and has served on the Granite United Way Grants Review Committee.
"At Dartmouth, we believe in embracing the world's troubles and being our neighbor's keeper," Onakomaiya says.
