What is the Senior Gift?

The Senior Gift is not a rock, a bench, or a tree.

The Senior Gift is an unrestricted monetary gift to the Bates Fund, which serves as an opportunity for the Class of 2015┬áto make its first philanthropic mark on the college. By making a gift to the Bates Fund, we join alumni, parents and friends in providing essential financial support of Bates needs. This opportunity ensures that future Batesies have the same – or better – experiences and opportunities that we have enjoyed at Bates.
