The vast majority of gifts to Bowdoin are made by check using a reply envelope provided by the College in a written appeal. These envelopes may be used at any time, and for any gift. Please note, either on your check or in an enclosed letter, how you would like to direct your gift (Alumni Fund, special project, etc.) and any other special instructions you might have.
If you do not have a College reply envelope, please use the following address for all contributions by check:
4100 College Station
Brunswick, ME 04011-8432
For reasons of security, Bowdoin does not recommend sending cash contributions through the mail.
