From Here: The Campaign for Bowdoin


A campaign's progress is often measured in dollars. Ours is also measured in loyalty, participation, and generous enthusiasm.

A successful campaign will include meeting our dollar goal of $500 million, while also sustaining the wave of participation that is so much a part of the Bowdoin community.

So many alumni and parents love Bowdoin—and many will be able to help with one of the fundraising goals we’ve identified—but thousands of Polar Bears and their families have other “capital” that can support the College: through career advising, offering internships, interviewing for admissions, organizing regional events, leading reunion efforts and more.

Our goal is to have 85 percent of our alumni engage with the College over the course of this campaign by making a gift, volunteering, or registering for an event.

Being engaged in the life of the College matters. However you decide to get involved, it all helps propel Bowdoin forward—from here.
