Jacklyn Dao Dinneen ’05 Rallies her Networks to Lift Up Students

Jacklyn Dao Dinneen ’05 knows philanthropy comes in many forms. As a Colby Fund volunteer and co-president of her class, Jackie rallies her classmates and friends to show up for the people and causes they care most about. As a passionate former Colby Rugger, giving to Friends of Rugby is especially meaningful to her.

“My time at Colby was absolutely enhanced by being part of a team. Everyone has to work together to achieve the goal; you don’t gain anything by going it alone. Seeing those values in action is a huge part of why I give back to Colby. I want current students to have access to those same incredible experiences too.”

From sharing the impact of the Dare Northward campaign on social media to offering guidance on career pathways through DavisConnects, Jackie is part of a strong network of alumni who care deeply about providing resources of all kinds in support of the next generation of changemakers.
