The collective annual leadership gift contributions from these individuals provides nearly 83% of annual giving totals. These donors are among the alumni, families, and friends who know Bowdoin best, steering the College successfully through each new challenge and opportunity.
1794 Society gifts have an immediate impact on students' Bowdoin experience. Without the ongoing support from 1794 Society donors, the College would need more than $140 million in additional endowment funds to continue operating.
