Class Agents

Class agents play an important role in keeping alumni connected and involved with Bates — creating a sense of community among classmates and strengthening their relationship with the college. Class Agents responsibilities include:

  • Lead by example: Make your gift to Bates by December 31.
  • Contact 10–20 classmates about making their Bates Fund gift.
  • Share news from campus and speak with classmates about the importance of giving to Bates.
  • Encourage classmates to participate in virtual or in-person alumni programming.
  • Thank those who made a gift with a personal thank-you.

There are more than 400 dedicated class agents who are integral to the success of our fundraising efforts. With the support and drive of our current agents, the class agent program is poised to create a strong foundation for Bates’ continued success and growth for years to come.

We hope the fundraising resources provided here are helpful. Please contact your staff liaison – listed below – with any questions.
