Support Bowdoin

The Sundial Circle

The Sundial Circle is Bowdoin's monthly recurring gift program. We call our recurring gift society the Sundial Circle because it melds an iconic emblem of the College—the rising sun—with a time-keeping device that reliably measures a recurring event: the sun’s path across the sky. Monthly recurring gifts provide Bowdoin with a critically important, renewable source of gift revenue.

The Benefits to You

Sundial

As a Sundial Circle donor, your gift is divided into manageable increments, which allows you to maximize the impact of your giving to the College while avoiding a large, one-time expense. And once you've set up your gift, you won’t receive any more solicitations for the remainder of the year.  

Setting up a recurring gift allowed us to simplify one small part of our lives, and it fit well with our personal budgeting process.  It took away the additional “to-do” of giving each year and, once implemented, we found that the monthly charge was easily managed.

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.
