Support Bowdoin

The Sundial Circle

The Sundial Circle is Bowdoin’s monthly recurring gift society. These gifts provide Bowdoin with a critically important, reliable source of revenue. They help Bowdoin meet the annual costs of supporting essential College activities and services.

You can establish a recurring gift with a contribution of as little as $5 per month. Monthly gifts can be made online. To establish a quarterly schedule (rather than a monthly one), please contact the Office of Annual Giving at 1-888-385-2254.

Sundial

SIMPLE. Your gift is divided into manageable increments and you choose your monthly gift amount.

CONVENIENT. Once your gift is in place, you won’t receive other Alumni Fund solicitations. Plus, your gift is tax-deductible and each January you will receive a summary of your total annual gift.

SECURE. Your automatic payment information is safe and secure, and you can make a change to your gift at any time by contacting the Office of Annual Giving at oag@bowdoin.edu.

Smaller installments, made more often, add up to a meaningful gift. By dividing your gift over a period of twelve months, the Sundial Circle may also allow you to make a leadership-level contribution. Learn more about the 1794 Society.
