Senior Gift

The continued financial support of alumni enables all aspects of the Bates experience for students, regardless of their financial background.

The class of 2020 has the opportunity to continue this tradition of paying it forward to future generations of Bates students through the Senior Gift Program!

Senior Gift emphasizes the importance of joining the Bates alumni community in supporting the college and its current programming (from academics, to student life, and everything in between!). It is a chance for the class to come together before graduation to show its appreciation for Bates.
