The Association of Bowdoin Friends strengthens the relationship between Bowdoin and the community affording members the opportunity to support and engage in the life of the College.

Founded in 1984, the Association of Bowdoin Friends is an informal group of individuals who share an interest in the programs and well-being of the College. Some Friends have direct ties to Bowdoin, either as individuals or through their families, although most are simply interested members of the community.

Bowdoin Friends are offered opportunities to become more involved in the life of the College by volunteering their time to support College activities through participation on the Friends' Steering Committee, or through participation in the Bowdoin Community Host Program.

Friends are also invited each year by the Friends of the College Fund to make charitable contributions to support College programs. Additionally, Bowdoin Friends are kept informed of College affairs and events through receipt of the electronic bi-weekly Bowdoin Bulletin newsletter.
