How much should I give?

Gifts of all sizes count toward participation, but here’s some information that will help you find a donation that works best for you.

$100 – Mount David Society Gift

Join Bates’ leadership giving society of alumni, parents and friends who make the College their top philanthropic priorities. Your gift become a $200 gift for the Senior Gift and the Bates Fund. You will receive an invitation to Mount David Society events, a library book dedicated in honor of your gift, mention in the Annual Giving Report, and a Mount David Society pin representing your support of Bates. Learn more about the Mount David Society.
$25 – Matched by the College Key

Each gift over $25 is matched by an alumni group, the College Key. This means when you make a gift of $25 or more it becomes a $50 gift for Bates.

$1 – Helps toward participation!

All gifts help with reaching our class’s participation goal, regardless of their size. Participating in the Bates Fund helps the College gain faculty and student grants. It would also be great if the Class of 2013 reached 88% participation – the all time Senior Gift record!
