All Events

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person campaign events have been suspended. However, we have a robust slate of virtual events, which are listed on the Alumni Events page. To get a sense of life on campus during COVID-19, visit the Bates College official Instagram page and follow Bates Alumni on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

The Case for Bates

In addition to advancing the college’s mission, The Bates Campaign will invest in our future by expanding the endowment and building upon current programs and facilities to serve the needs of students for generations to come.

From President Clayton Spencer

This major fundraising endeavor — the largest in our history — will strengthen the college for decades to come.

A Message from the Bates Campaign Chairs

The success of The Bates Campaign requires the engagement of our whole community to provide critical funding for faculty, academic programs, high-priority facilities, student programs, financial aid, Purposeful Work, athletics, The Bates Fund — and more.
