1794 donors play a vital role in Bowdoin’s ability to remain one of only twenty college and universities in the country offering a combination of need-blind admission and no-loan financial aid. Bowdoin remains committed to meeting the full demonstrated need of each admitted student, providing an enduring and rigorous liberal arts education, and offering opportunities and resources to land their first great job.
"By contributing at the 1794 Society level, I am confident that I am supporting the academic growth of the leaders of tomorrow."
– Jeannie A. Brountas ’83
