The Senior Class Gift Campaign (SCGC)’s mission is to educate graduating students about the importance of giving back to Bowdoin and engage them in contributing to the Alumni Fund. Through the SCGC, seniors gain an understanding of how their Bowdoin experiences have been shaped, in part, by the support of Bowdoin alumni, and have the opportunity to support Bowdoin through a contribution to their class scholarship fund.
Challenge Grant: If the Class of 2017 reaches at least 60% participation this year and the next four, an anonymous donor will contribute $10,000 each year for the next four years to establish and support the Class of 2017 Scholarship Fund.
Our Goal: The senior class goal is to reach 80% participation before graduation.

Why did you decide to get involved with the SCGC? I have a vested interest in staying in touch with my peers throughout the year and after graduation because I have cherished my time at Bowdoin. This position not only gives me an "excuse" to stay connected to my class, but also helps me to more easily meet new members of my class that I may not know already.

Why did you decide to get involved with the SCGC? There are three main reasons. One is the experience I would gain from the position. Another is that I believe gifts to Bowdoin are used incredibly well. Lastly, I think it would be an amazing opportunity to get to know my entire class.
