Senior Gift

Bates has welcomed people of all backgrounds since its founding in 1855, and their experiences while on campus have been made possible through the financial support of alumni.

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

Senior Gift stresses the importance of joining the Bates alumni community in giving back to the college and supporting 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.
