Support Bowdoin

The Parents Fund

Parents Fund

The Parents Fund is the annual fundraising effort conducted during the fiscal year July 1-June 30. Through gifts to the Parents Fund, parents of current undergraduates as well as graduates support and enhance educational programs and opportunities at Bowdoin. Unrestricted gifts, in particular, allow the College flexibility in applying resources to the areas of greatest need, or greatest opportunity, over the course of each year. Contributions to the Parents Fund help meet current expenses for essentials such as academic program support, library acquisitions, classroom equipment, athletics, career counseling, and numerous other student-related programs.
