The Mount David Society recognizes Bates Fund donors who put the college first in their annual philanthropy. These individuals lead the way in supporting Bates by making significant, unrestricted current-use gifts each year — gifts that underpin the college’s ability to sustain excellence. The generous contributions of Mount David Society members provide nearly 80 percent of the Bates Fund total each year and make a tremendous impact on the campus each day.
This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Mount David Society, marking a decade of impressive growth in Bates Fund leadership giving. Since its inaugural year in 2004, annual MDS gifts have increased from $2.2 million to $4.9 million, leading the way in enhancing a transformative Bates experience.
