It’s a GREAT DAY to be a Bobcat!

Help us reach our goal of 1,855 donors by May 13.

On Wednesday, May 13, the Bates community will come together to show our Bobcat pride and celebrate what makes Bates great. Bring the Bates community into your home during our livestream celebration, which will feature familiar campus faces as well as the Bobcat!

Whether you consider a gift to the Bates Fund or to our Friends of Bates Athletics challenge, your participation at any level will contribute to the joy, support, and connection that Great Day provides to Batesies near and far.
