Dumbledore’s Army of New Paltz is SUNY New Paltz’s chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance. We are dedicated to decreasing “world suck,” while upholding the values the Harry Potter series teaches. We work on campaigns, both with and without the HPA, in an effort to fight real-world Dark Arts.


This year Dumbledore's Army will be raising money to support the charity the Mental Health Association of Ulster County! 

Here is the Mission of the organisation taken from their website: 

The Mental Health Association in Ulster County, Inc. (MHA) was chartered as a not-for-profit organization in 1959 by a group of physicians and concerned citizens in order to develop a coordinated citizens' movement to promote mental health and to work toward the improved care and treatment of persons with mental illness. The Association is a United Way Agency, a Contract Agency of the Ulster County Community Services Board, Ulster County Department of Social Services, and an affiliate of the National and New York State Mental Health Associations.

The Mental Health Association in Ulster County, Inc. views its role as an advocate to focus community attention on problems related to mental health and to initiate needed services for children and families , and services for adults.

We will also be participating in Make a Difference Day and Relay for Life. Dumbledore's Army of New Paltz has been a participant in these events for Seven years running!
