Thank You!

Thank you for making 2022-2023 another remarkable year for Bates. 

This year, more than 8,600 alumni, families, and friends collectively gave over $31.29 million in support of the college — making fiscal year 2023 the fourth consecutive year in which our community raised more than $30 million. This year, we are especially proud that the Bates Fund surpassed its goal of $7.8 million.

We could not be more grateful for your generosity, which impacts every aspect of life on campus. 

Here’s a snapshot of what you make possible.
