The 1794 Society includes alumni, parents, and friends who are committed to investing in opportunities and experiences for today’s students by making significant, unrestricted current-use gifts. The collective contributions from these individuals provides more than 80% of Bowdoin's annual giving totals.

1794 donors play a vital role in Bowdoin’s ability to remain one of only nineteen 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.
