Although a handful of states have legalized same-sex marriage, many legal pitfalls still remain because of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman and therefore denies same-sex spouses many rights. Join Ara Gershengorn, Bob Goldman & Alyssa Rower for a lively discussion about:
– The recent legal challenges to DOMA and surrounding constitutional issues
– Crafting around DOMA: Prenuptial agreements and estate planning;
– Leaving a state that recognizes same-sex marriage and moving to a “mini DOMA” state;
– Special issues for same-sex couples in marriage and divorce

The DGALA-DCF Scholars Challenge is On!

DGALA is excited to announce that a member of our community and her partner will match, dollar for dollar, gifts made by DGALA members to Dartmouth through the Dartmouth College Fund, if they are received by June 30. Our generous Challengers have committed to matching up to $15,000 in gifts from DGALA members who have not made an annual gift this year.

For several years now, DGALA has had a special relationship with the Dartmouth College Fund; for every $30,000 our community contributes through the Fund, a GLBTQA student receiving need-based financial aid is named a DGALA Scholar. Our philanthropy last year resulted in four DGALA Scholars. Our goal this year is to support five scholars.
