50th Reunion Giving

The 50th Reunion is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and many alumni mark the occasion with a special gift to Bowdoin.

50th Reunion class members have an opportunity to mark this important milestone with a meaningful gift, one that dovetails personal philanthropic goals with the College’s priorities. A variety of options allow gifts to be tailored to each class member's individual priorities and circumstances.

Bowdoin recognizes a broad range of current and future gifts, extended over several years, as part of an individual's 50th Reunion gift. Current gifts, whether designated for annual or capital/endowment purposes, and future gifts established through estate plan provisions and other vehicles all count toward the total.


For many alumni, the 50th Reunion Gift is an individualized expression of their relationship with Bowdoin, creates a lasting legacy at the College, makes a significant impact on the lives of Bowdoin students, and plays a central role in their philanthropic and estate planning.
