One measure of Bowdoin's financial health is the College's ability to balance its operating budget while making major new capital investments in programs and facilities. The generosity of alumni and friends in establishing endowments and funding construction and renovation at Bowdoin over more than two centuries has been remarkable.

Endowment growth is crucial both to Bowdoin's immediate success and its long-term strength. The need for permanent endowed funds that underpin student financial aid, instructional support, library and information technology, and other programs is on-going.
