Make a Gift

The Bates Fund

The Bates Fund is a critical measure of Bobcat pride. Every year, our donors provide vital support for quality academic, athletic and co-curricular programs.

The Parents Fund

Parents are crucial partners in the college’s efforts of providing the best possible education to all students.

Leadership Giving

There are many exciting Leadership Giving opportunities at Bates, including endowed funds, special initiatives and projects and the Philips and Benjamin Bates Societies.

Friends of Bates Athletics

Over half of current Bates students participate in varsity or club sports, and nearly 14,000 alumni played on some type of athletic team. Through financial contributions, FBA strengthens the budgets of athletic teams, helping them to become as competitive as possible. FBA also connects Bates athletics enthusiasts through events and gatherings.
