The Dartmouth Women’s Club (DWC) of Boston was founded in April of 1930 by a group of spouses and mothers of students of The College for the purpose of furthering loyalty to and support for Dartmouth College.  Friendship, community, and celebration serve as the foundation of this membership club.

True to the founding of our organization, our members include mostly spouses and mothers of current and former students of Dartmouth College. We also welcome and have in our membership alumnae and other affiliates of The College.

The Club is a 501(c)3 dedicated to our mission of fostering friendships among Dartmouth affiliated women as well as supporting a Scholarship Fund.  Over the ninety plus years of existence, the DWC has accumulated a Scholarship Fund at the College currently valued over $1.3m. Income from this fund provides scholarships for several current students at Dartmouth who are from Massachusetts. 

Annual Events

October: New Mother’s Welcome Luncheon – We invite the mothers of all incoming Freshmen in the greater Boston area to a luncheon at a local country club.  A Dartmouth Professor joins us for an enriching lecture.  We enjoy lunch together and welcome back existing members and get to know the new mothers who join us. 

December: Holiday luncheon, live entertainment, auction/raffle to fund our scholarship fund. We invite all members and their guests to join us for a celebratory holiday luncheon. Entertainment, a silent auction, and a raffle are the pillars of the event.  In the past we have listened to various Dartmouth student-led a capella groups and participated in live cooking demonstrations.  Dollars raised at this event are 100% tax deductible and are funneled into our scholarship fund.

February: In February we have enjoyed a museum tour followed by a luncheon.  Among the various museums we have visited include the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, Peabody Essex Museum, and the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College.

April: Author’s night is one of the highlights of our programming and is an evening event. We have listened to Ty Burr of the Boston Globe, Melinda Lopez ’86 an award-winning playwright, and Marjan Kamali a local author.

May: Annual Meeting is a combination of tour and meeting. We have gathered at the Concord Museum and the Arnold Arboretum with a luncheon/meeting following the tour.
