Endowment & Special Projects

Endowed funds play a critically important role in the College's operations, providing thirty-nine percent of the annual budget revenue and nearly three-quarters of the financial aid budget. Bowdoin's exceptional endowment performance, year after year, has enabled the endowment both to provide significant funding and to continue to grow.
A gift to an endowed fund at Bowdoin for scholarships, fellowships/internships, the academic program, or other special purposes provides support for countless future generations of Polar Bears. View more than 1,700 existing endowed funds, or create a new endowed fund at Bowdoin with a leadership gift of $100,000 or more.
