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 to 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.
