Bates Beacons Monthly Giving Program

Benefits to becoming a Bates Beacon

Impact: Monthly giving helps you maximize your Bates Fund gift by incorporating it into your monthly budget.

Convenience: You can automatically direct your monthly gift from your credit card or checking account. If for any reason you wish to increase, decrease or suspend your gift, call toll free at 1-888-522-8371, and we will be happy to accommodate you.

Sustainability: When you make a monthly gift to the Bates Fund, you are opted out of all future paper and email solicitations.
