’03s to ’18s—Please join us for the BEST Dartmouth College Fund event of the Year: Camp Granite!

Friday, March 15 to Sunday, March 17, 2019

During the weekend we’ll work hard—dialing for dollars to raise money for financial aid—to boost DCF participation during the Granite Challenge.* Plus, we’ll have time for fun too.

*The Granite Challenge is a one-month Challenge for the 16 most recent classes, which compete in brackets of four for the most donors in March. The Class with the most gifts wins the Granite Moose Award AND $10,000 toward their class goal. Other bracket winners earn $5,000 each.
